So far the best we've been able to do is let people know that you can usually get the library's wireless in the parking lot during open hours. I'd love to hear if anyone has any other ideas!

Subject: [Libs-Or] Helping patrons without internet access (or the million dollar question)

Hello all,

Has anyone found options to help patrons who don't have internet access but need to see the online or print materials?

I had a patron call with a legal question, and it's not something I can just read over the phone. They have been unable to get legal assistance. I imagine many library patrons are struggling without internet access. I figured I'd see if/how any other librarians are addressing this need.
