Baltimore County Libraries Expand External WiFi

Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski announced Baltimore County Public Library (BCPL) branches will now offer new exterior WiFi resources to support residents.

Residents will be required to remain in their vehicles and adhere to all guidelines. BCPL Director Paula Miller acknowledged that internet access is critical for everyone during this time and said she is “thrilled with this solution” that allows branches to support members of the community.

From the press release:

“This crisis has upended life in countless ways, and it requires us to find creative solutions to the challenges we face,” Olszewski said. “We hope these new WiFi resources will help narrow the access gap as we continue to work around the clock to identify additional resources to support Baltimore County families during these trying times.”

Baltimore County will now have external WiFi capacity at ten branches across the county.
