Loudoun County is offering new Wi-Fi hot spots for residents in western Loudoun. The county has worked to amplify the Loudoun County Public Library’s Wi-Fi signal so that it is available to access in the parking lots immediately adjacent to the Lovettsville, Middleburg and Purcellville libraries.
Residents who have no reliable internet service are encouraged to use the free Wi-Fi to access information about COVID-19 and complete any other type of essential online business, such as ordering groceries or other household supplies. Residents are asked to stay in their vehicles in order to maintain the physical distancing needed to mitigate the spread of the novel coronavirus. Users of the service who are not in vehicles are also asked to maintain a distance of approximately 6 feet from others.
The name of the network is LibraryWiFi. No password is required, although users will need to click “accept” on the landing page.
The Wi-Fi hot spots are expected to be operational Monday, April 13, 2020. Service will be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Loudoun County encourages residents to stay informed about COVID-19.
