Internet service a winner Free internet service is proving its worth in libraries and marae across New Zealand including the nor-west. The Aotearoa People's Network Kaharoha prov- ides free access to broadband internet ser- vices to more than 130 libraries and three marae has received over- whelming support. An independent evalu- ation of the programme indicates it is having a profound effect in en- hancing the financial, employment, educational and social opportunities for users. It has also signific- antly boosted library membership and usage. The National Library is pleased to see that the APNK is delivering the benefits we intended when launching it three years ago,'' says acting national librarian, Sue Sutherland. She says it's signif- icant many respondents reported they didn't have other forms of access to the internet. The evaluation shows that it has been a major success and while there may be challenges for libraries in managing the increasing public demand for the service, none of the participants in the evaluation mentioned that libraries should go back to the way they were.''
