Bloomfield Public Library Extends Free WiFi Coverage to the Town Green

BLOOMFIELD, NJ -- The Bloomfield Public Library has extended its free WiFi coverage to cover outside the library, the State Street lot and the library courtyard. The expanded coverage will allow residents to safely remain connected outdoors so that they can get whatever information they need at this time.

"During this time of COVID-19 and lockdowns, the Library wanted to find a way to offer increased free WiFi services to the residents of Bloomfield, and by expanding the coverage into outdoor areas we can help more people connect to the online information they need," Library Director Holly Belli said. "The Bloomfield Library Foundation has been instrumental in responding to the Library’s need to find ways to reach patrons with the services they have come to expect."

There will be no password to access the WiFi and there will be no limits or fees. All of this was only possible thanks to support from the Bloomfield Public Library Foundation.

"As the Library swiftly adapts to meet new challenges, the Foundation is thrilled to support this by investing in technology service enhancements that broaden our community’s access to invaluable online resources, as well as allow users to connect from healthful green spaces outside," said Bloomfield Public Library Foundation President Mollie Smith.

"This is another example of how our library plays an essential role in providing the public with free access to information and services," said Councilwoman Jenny Mundell, liaison to the Bloomfield Public Library Board of Trustees. "We are grateful to the foundation for its support of the library’s mission and excited to partner with them on future projects and initiatives."
