WiFi Access in U.S. Public Libraries

To better meet growing patron demand for online information and services, public libraries continue to expand free public access to the Internet via wireless connections. A vast majority of libraries (70 percent) reported increased use of their wireless networks in 2009-2010. Nationwide, 82 percent of public libraries now offer this service, and some states (and the District of Columbia) report universal WiFi access in their public libraries.
