Free wireless WiFi internet access is to be made available to all public libraries across the Falkirk Council area.
Users will be able to access WiFi in libraries
The local authority is one of only nine in Scotland to secure funding for the plan, due to be introduced this week.
The service will enable anyone aged 16 and over with a laptop or handheld device to surf the web for free.
Funding for the £27,000 project comes from the Public Library Quality Improvement Fund.
The system works by providing users with a login ID and Pin number which grants access.
Dr Alex Waddell, convener of education and leisure at Falkirk Council, said the new service was all about extending access to the internet across the area.
He said: "A pilot scheme has been running for several weeks in Grangemouth Library where users have been so enthusiastic, some have been seen sitting in the car park after the library has closed and surfing for free."
