Fremont Library Opens New iPad Kiosk With Donation (PHOTOS)

Charter Communications is partnering with the Wayne County Public Library to promote new high-speed broadband for families and seniors.

Tuesday, Charter Communications celebrated the opening of its new iPad kiosk that was donated to the Fremont Library.

Donna Phillips, the Director of the Wayne County Public Library, says the $3,000 donation from Charter is being used a few different ways at the Fremont Library.

The iPad kiosk will give kids access to thousands of online books.

Eric Collins, the Director of Governmental Affairs for Charter Communications, says the donation is also being used for STEM purposes, with children building robots at the library.

Representative John Bell was also on hand and he praised Charter Communications’ commitment to closing the digital divide.

The event also served as a chance to inform the public of the new low-cost, high-speed broadband service, Spectrum Internet Assist.

Spectrum Internet Assist is available for:

  • Families with students who participate in the National School Lunch Program
  • Seniors who are 65 and older who receive Supplemental Security Income program benefits

Additional Criteria:

  • Current phone and video customers who meet one of the two criteria above may enroll.
  • Prospective SIA enrollees cannot have had a Charter/Time Warner Cable/Bright House Networks broadband subscription within 30 days of signing up.
  • Eligible participants will not need to undergo a credit check but they must clear any outstanding debt with Charter, Time Warner Cable or Bright House Networks from the previous 12 months.
