Los Angeles County Libraries Offer Free Wi-Fi Service In Parking Lots

Published December 23, 2020


Free outdoor Wi-Fi service is available in the parking lots of 32 Los Angeles County libraries through funding from the Coronavirus Relief Fund Spending Plan, officials announced today.

The Park & Connect program allows anyone to access Wi-Fi by parking in a designated spot and using their device in their vehicle, Los Angeles County Library officials said. Those without vehicles may sit within 25 feet of the library but are asked to wear masks and follow social distancing guidelines.

Once within range, Wi-Fi can be accessed by clicking the network “CountyLibraryWiFi,” accepting the terms of agreement, then closing and reopening a browser.


“We are adjusting our business model to ensure that we provide service to our customers during these trying times,” L.A. County Library Director Skye Patrick said. “Our doors may be closed due to the pandemic, but L.A. County Library is ensuring that its customers have the necessary tools to stay connected — whether it be for school, work, or enjoyment.”

To see a list of participating libraries, visit Fi. Officials expect more libraries to be added to the Park & Connect program in 2021.

L.A. County Library officials are also operating 79 sidewalk service locations where customers 18 years old and over can check out laptops and hotspot kits to be used at home for three weeks with the possibility to renew up to three times.
