REMUS — Guests visiting the Wheatland Township Library will notice two additions to library at their next visit.

The library now offers free Wi-Fi to visitors. Anyone who wishes to use the service can visit the library during its normal hours, receive the access code and relax at the facility while using their laptop, said library director Becky Kurtz.

“We just had more and more people inquire if they could use laptops … and we thought why not,” she said. “The need is there and we are trying to fulfill it the best we can.”

The service has been available for roughly a week, Kurtz said.

The second addition to the library is the return of its display of local art. For the fifth year, the library has invited artists from around the area to display their artwork throughout the library. The artwork will be displayed until September and includes woodcarvings, paintings, poetry, yarn work and more. The current display contains the work of four artists, but Kurtz expects to add more.

The library is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday. It is located at 207 Michigan Ave. in Remus.
