OC Public Libraries Launches WiFi on Wheels

Library staff will park a County vehicle with a branded WiFi on Wheels Trailer at pre-designated locations each week to provide broadband for up to 150 users within a 300-yard radius. OC Public Libraries outreach staff will be present to answer questions, provide information about library services, and register patrons for library cards. Children and job search books will also be available from the behicle in English, Spanish, and Vietnamese.

A kick-off event will take place at the Westminster Library located at 8180 13th Street, Westminster, CA 92683 on Tuesday, October 20, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. The Westminster Library is the first branch of OC Public Libraries to extend WiFi beyond library walls and check out wireless hotspots for library cardholders. Families are encouraged to stop by and check out digital library services, take a photo with Rita the Zebra, and other giveaways, while supplies last. Social distance and safety guidelines will be followed.
