SOUTH SOUND: Smaller libraries to get high-speed Internet

Nine smaller libraries in the Timberland Regional Library system will get high-speed Internet in the next few years, thanks to a federal grant.

They are in Chehalis, McCleary, Naselle, Randle, Salkum, Amanda Park, Hoodsport, Packwood and Westport. Timberland has upgraded network connections at 14 of its 27 libraries in the past five years, a news release states.
