TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Four public libraries have been selected as pilot sites for a Wi-Fi network project being coordinated by the State Library of Kansas.

The Kansas City K-20 Librarians Initiative is part of the national Gigabit Libraries Network's super Wi-Fi project. It involves a four-month test of TV White Space Technology which will deliver public library Internet access to remote locations in the communities.

The public libraries taking part are located in Lawrence, Manhattan, Topeka and Kansas City, Kan.

State librarian Jo Budler says the project will help libraries provide greater public access to Internet connections that she said can be useful in economic development, lifelong learning and professional development.
