Free public access Wi-Fi is now available in the area immediately around the Grannis City Hall building thanks to a cooperative effort by the Polk County Library Board and the Grannis City Council.
According to Barbara Frachiseur, Grannis City Recorder/Treasurer, the network is named Open Mesh and is available 24/7.

There are no outside electrical outlets for use by the public but individuals with battery powered laptops can sit in their vehicles or in the park to use the Internet.

The free Wi-Fi connection is also available inside the Grannis Community Room for use during meetings and special events.

Susie Mosley, president of the Polk County Library Board, said the Grannis Cyber Library is a pilot project. If it is successful, the Library Board will establish other cyber branches in Polk County communities.

The Polk County Library Board has recognized the work of long-time librarian Shirley Philpot with a change of title. Her new title is County Librarian.

According to the board president, Susie Mosley, the new title better reflects the job responsibilities for the librarian of the Polk County Library. Mosley stated that the Polk County Library serves all of the communities of Polk County, AR, not just Mena.

The library staff and the board are making every effort to provide library services as close to home as possible for all of the people in Polk County, AR. At this time there are branch bookcase libraries in Big Fork, Board Camp, Hatfield, and Shady. A branch virtual library with free Wi-Fi is being established in Grannis.

Mosley added, “The Library Board members are stretching the money as far as possible to provide the best we can afford. We are making slow but steady progress in taking the library to the people.”
