TSLAC creates map to help Texans locate free Wi-Fi

Tocker Foundation Technology Leave a Comment

Texas State Library and Archives Commission takes the lead on helping Texans find free Wi-Fi. At the urging of Texas Legal Services Center/TexasLawHelp.com, and Texas Rio Grande Legal Aid, TSLAC has launched a map of public Wi-Fi spots across the state. But the job is not yet complete. They need your help by adding more locations not currently included.

If your library offers freely accessible Wi-Fi that individuals can connect to outside as well as inside of the building, please fill out the below form. The information you provide will further populate the map. Start by checking to see if your location is already included on the map.

  • Not there? Fill out this short form to add your organization to the map: https://arcg.is/0TOPvu0  
    Tip: Fill out the form as if you were someone who had never visited your library before.
  • If you have multiple branches for your library location, please fill out the form for each branch.
  • Provide as much specific information about each individual location as possible, including library hours and places where Wi-Fi is easily reachable.

Know other organizations or businesses who need to be added? Please share these links. Together, we can help connect Texans to the internet during a highly sensitive time. 

For more information or for questions, please email the project team at [email protected]. If you have library-specific questions, contact Cindy Fisher, [email protected].
