Free WiFi One Reason LOC Cited As ‘Underrated’

Share this post:

The Washington Post’s “Express” publication today named the Library the “Best Underrated Tourist Attraction” in D.C.  We tend to agree, and not just because of the bountiful collections, the gorgeous architecture, the exhibits, and plenty of free concerts, lectures and other events.

So what’s another reason to love coming to our reading rooms?  In the words of Express: “There’s FREE WI-FI.”

Cassy Ammen and Donna Scanlon helped fill in the details for me:

Our Ask a Librarian service here at the Library is often asked whether we offer wireless access for our visitors and researchers.  The answer, of course, is WE DO!

Free wireless Internet access is available in all of our public research areas.  Not only do those in our reading room have access to the Internet, they are also able to access our subscription resources while they are onsite.

For complete information about our onsite research tools and services, additional locations, and technical requirements, please see the Research and Reference Services wireless page.

Thanks, Donna and Cassy!

  1. I agree!! I was in Washington D.C. in June for ALA and we toured the library…twice!! We even came back to get a library card so we could sit in the reading room and just take in the beauty of the room. I can’t wait to take my daughter to the LOC!

  2. Excelent article for Library of Congress and his values.

    Thanks, Matt Raymond

    The best regards

  3. is the working URL for information about the wireless access in reading rooms. The URL above includes a period (.) at the end that results in a page-not-found error.
