PARK(ing) Day

Palm Beach County Library System Participates in PARK(ing) Day to Draw Attention to Expanded Wi-Fi

Eight Palm Beach County Library locations will participate in PARK(ing) Day on Fri, Sep 18, by setting up a park in the parking lot. Earlier this month the County’s Information System Services (ISS) extended the Library’s Wi-Fi signal throughout the parking lot at most of the Library locations “Having Wi-Fi available in our parking lots allows members who do not want to come into the building the ability to sit in their car and use their laptop or mobile device,” said Library director Doug Crane. “It also provides an internet connection to families who may not have the service in their homes.”
