The Blount County Public Library will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 3 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 25, to reveal two new solar-powered Wi-Fi charging tables at the rear of the library, 508 N. Cusick St., Maryville.
The ceremony also will double as an official kickoff for the SkyFi Project — the initiative to install more of the solar-powered Wi-Fi charging tables. The tables generate solar electricity and allow users to charge devices and access Wi-Fi at any time of day.
The two new tables that will be revealed Thursday were purchased with a grant awarded by the Arconic Foundation to the Blount County Friends of the Library.
Additionally, the Rotary Club of Maryville is raising money to install two solar tables at the Alcoa Duck Pond and is $3,000 away from meeting its goal.
