Lewiston Library offers patrons quiet,
high-performance zero clients and virtual desktops.

Lewiston is located in North Central Idaho next to its sister city, Clarkston, Washington, in the Lewis-Clark Valley. Lewiston originally served as the territorial capitol, and today is one of the few communities in the state to operate under the Council/Manager form of government.

"With PCoIP zero clients, massive spreadsheets open instantly just as if they were in the same physical building with the central data center and storage arrays. Employees are thrilled – it works like we wish it had always worked."
