I would call as many phone companies as you can - ATT, Comcast, Verizon, etc. - and see if they can offer you anything. You may have to sign up for cell service w/internet. They will give you a USB wireless adapter for their system and that will get you online over the cell towers. The only other option I know of is satellite internet and I'm not even sure that is available anymore. Your options may be few and expensive.

If they're bmp files you can open them in picture and fax viewer and resave them as jpg files. There are ways to cut a jpg file down even further. Randy is right I have comcast and at times it's too slow I wouldn't have the patience to use a dialup connection. What does the library in your town use?

I found these links that might help.

I recommend the (free) Microsoft Image Resizer tool. Scott.
