Public Library Announces Free Outdoor Wi-Fi

Pawtucket Public Library is now providing high-speed internet outside the building 24/7.   You can access it on its front walkway, bench, front steps and adjacent library parking lot while safely social distancing.  

This is a valuable resource for those who have no or limited Internet service at home, are experiencing a residential power outage, or are traveling around Rhode Island.  

This outside Wi-Fi access is part of an exciting initiative by Ocean State Libraries to expand access to high-speed Internet across Rhode Island. Simply visit a participating library and connect your device to the network from your car or a cozy bench outside. The name of Pawtucket’s free outside Wi-Fi network is “Library_ParkingLot.”

This project has been made possible with generous funding from the Rhode Island Take It Outside initiative and the Rhode Island Foundation, with a generous donation of equipment from the Information Technology Disaster Resource Center, and through partnerships with OSHEAN (Ocean State Higher Education Economic Development and Administrative Network) and your local public library.
