One of the core pillars of libraries is providing free access to information. In today’s digital society, much of that information is accessible exclusively via the Internet. Without cheap and reliable access to the Internet, many people find it hard to access services, government support, education, banking, and employment. The City of Armadale libraries ran a pilot project with Telstra to provide free Internet access to local, disadvantaged year-eleven and year-twelve students for the school year.
