Feature article on how Maine's schools and libraries are hooking up to the Internet.

Mount Vernon spent $10,000 to install computers in grade school classrooms, allowing the town to take advantage of Internet access. Jordan-Small School in Raymond has a computer-to-student ratio of 1:9, and some in the school would like to see the ratio at 1:2.
