The Greenville County Library System has extended its’ public WiFi network coverage to include the lawn in front of the Hughes Main Library on Heritage Green in downtown Greenville and parking areas at all 11 branch libraries located throughout Greenville County.

Newly installed directional antennas enable students, job searchers, unemployment benefit applicants, and individuals honing a particular skill to freely access the Internet.

Greenville County Library System cardholders can access an array of downloadable and online resources free of charge when using the expanded public WiFi network.

“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”, noted Beverly James, Greenville County Library System Executive Director.

This free public WiFi network is accessible without a library card and is available daily from 6am to 9pm.

To connect, select the “gclswireless” network on any wireless enabled device.
