Last month we learned that the Toledo Lucas County Public Libraries offer FREE Wi-Fi, along with the previous Buckeye Wireless for existing BEX customers.

March 2008 News:
While not exhaustive, the recent updates are the most comprehensive since 12/2005. Prior updates were not more frequent due to time constraints and lack of site hits. With the proposal of city-wide Wi-Fi for Toledo, this page has gained some popularity in the last year. With this new interest, we may consider more frequent updates to this page, and possibly a change to a friendlier format. Any help with update information is very welcome.
