Posted on | No Comments

Want to take work or school outside but lack a wireless option? The Greenville County Library System is now offering public WiFi outdoors.

All libraries already offer free wireless connections indoors but well, we can’t use those right now much because of COVID. So they are extending that public WiFi connection coverage in all parking areas of every library branch in Greenville County and the lawn in front of the Hughes Main Library on Heritage Green (picnic plus virtual learning anyone?).

“Given the ever increasing dependency on the Internet for the provision of health care, learning outside the classroom, communication, entertainment, and access to government services, the Greenville County Library System is pleased to be able to provide this connectivity option at all our facilities,” said Beverly James, Greenville County Library System Executive Director.

You don’t need a library card to access the free public WiFi outdoors, which will be available daily from 6 am to 9 pm. To connect to the network, select “gclswireless”.

Only the Hughes Main Library is open to the public. All other branches offer curbside pickup for books, movies, and other library offerings.

The library offers a ton of fantastic resources online all for free, which you can learn about here. As of right now, the library has not indicated when all branches will re-open.
