When it comes to your home, outdated technology is not something you want to feature. Your Montana home deserves the best, updated technology that is available. The good news is that HughesNet in Montana is ready to serve you and everyone in your household. In today’s society, you will rarely find a home that does not have an internet connection. The internet is how billions of people connect and catch up on a daily basis. What’s outdated technology? As far as the internet is concerned, outdated technology is cable and DSL internet connections. Why are they outdated. DSL internet has been a thing of the past for quite some time. It was the only thing smoking at one time, but that flame has died out and turned to ash. DSL requires a technician to come out and connect your home to the internet through your phone line. What does this mean? This means you have to have an active phone line and purchase the extra equipment you need to be able to receive a connection. Your Montana home is more than that! Then you have cable on the other end of the spectrum. Cable, like DSL was a smoking business train at one time, but that flame is dying out. Why? After you have cable installed and holes are drilled into every wall of your home that requires cable service, you will pay for the high-tech equipment that is used. It may sound like an awesome deal, but the truth to the matter is, you don’t need fancy gadgets and equipment to receive a reliable internet connection. Don’t destroy your Montana home!
Satellite internet is ready when you are. Technicians do not have to enter your home and destroy your property by drilling holes and running wires through it. A satellite dish will be placed outside of your home and you will be given your login and password information. That’s all there is to it! You will have reliable internet service through satellite without your home appearing like termites moved in and it will not take the technician hours of wondering through your home to install everything and ensure everything works. Think about your home! Don’t let it be destroyed. Your Montana home will thank you!
Every year during National Library Week, Wednesday is set aside to recognize and celebrate the Bookmobile. What is a bookmobile, you might ask? Is it designed anything like the Batmobile; outfitted with gadgets and crime fighting mechanisms? Well, in some ways it is. Although the physical body of the bookmobile is shaped more like a bus or a service truck, and not an expensive sports car. It is outfitted with shelves and brackets that make it possible for librarians to fill them with books and other information sharing gadgets, then transport them to places where library patrons who live in rural communities can access the materials.
The article “”The World On Wheels: Bookmobile The Center Of Rural Life”” is written by Nella Letizia who is a Washington State University Library Systems employee. In the article she recounts how she stumbled upon a bookmobile when she was a child growing up in Boise, Idaho and how a fellow WSU coworker and her family was impacted by their community bookmobile in Benton City, Washington. Their stories show how crime fighting mechanisms can be more than just ropes, hooks, and turbo boosters. And how bookmobiles that are purposely stocked with materials that cover a wide range of subjects can be just as effective for stimulating minds and filling idle time.
Bookmobiles have been around for more than 100 years, and they are still active in many rural communities across the United States. However, in other countries, the books are designed to be transported by animals or bicycles instead of motor powered vehicles, but they serve the same purpose. And, many modern day bookmobiles are now equipped with WI-FI, so that patrons may also access the internet for free. Other bookmobile outreaches include being present at festivals, at school events, expos, and in town parades.
I had a similar introduction to the wonder of words and books, in that, my father bought a set of encyclopedias from a traveling salesman in 1975. My mother tried her best to dissuade him, but he would not be deterred. He died in 1983 when I was eleven years old. We moved to another house, and it was in there that I discovered the encyclopedias on a book shelf. I instantly fell in love with words in the form of Nursery rhymes, riddles, puzzles, and definitions. Punctuation, dates, and numbers were bothersome interruptions that, later, I would come to realize are very necessary for relaying written information. But, by that time I was hooked on words. I believe in lifelong learning and how an early introduction to literature can have lasting positive effects on people who do not have ready access to the resources of a library.
