- More than half the survey participants search the Internet first to learn about something they want or need to know. Wireless access to the Internet is available throughout Park Springs, so you can surf the Web no matter where you are, what you’re doing – or what you’d like to learn!
- Almost 7 in 10 respondents preferred using newspapers, magazines, books and journals when they want to learn.
