AADL To Improve WiFi Access At Branch Parking Lots

Dec 16, 2020

The Ann Arbor District Library is in the process of improving its WiFi access points at branch location parking lots to better serve the community.  


By Friday, December 18th, all library branches, outside of the downtown location, will have stronger WiFi service for patrons to use in the branch parking lots.  Library Director Josie Parker says the current WiFi service doesn’t cover the entire spaces and that the boost in WiFi service will benefit many patrons during the pandemic.

Josie Parker: Because of the pandemic, and because so much is being required of people to do things virtually, schoolwork and as well a regular work, and folks can’t get into the library to do that work, we’re sort of bringing the library boundaries out a little bit into the outside in a way that we hadn’t before. 

The downtown location will not get the WiFi boost because of limited parking in that area.  The service will be free and will not require a library card.
