PINE RIDGE – Pine Ridge residents are celebrating the opening of a public Internet library on the reservation.

Native American Telecom president Tom Reiman tells KELO television that the library features 11 computers that can be used by tribal members. The library is also a Wi-Fi hotspot, letting people connect their own wireless devices.

The library will be open at least five days a week and Internet use is free. Officials hope that getting more people online will bring the community closer.

Reiman says the company hopes to expand service to the entire village of Pine Ridge and then the entire reservation. Tribal members will also receive a reduced rate for internet service in their homes.

Native American Telecom opened up a similar Internet library on the Crow Creek Reservation last week.
