Need free Internet Access?

Need free Internet Access? Head to your local library or community center. This page allows you to type in a zipcode and find out where you can access (or learn about) the internet, usually for free. If you know someone in your neighborhood who isn't connected and might like this info, why not print out the page and give it to them?

Very cool resource, though it would be more useful if they sorted the results into free and capital-F Free.

Not that there are very many of those, but still.

I would never be friendly with anyone who did not have their own connection. Now I am gradually cutting off former friends who have but phone connects at 56k...they too are become losers.

I used to use the DC library system as my internet connection. Except for the one hour rule (which I totally understood) it was better than having my own, because I had to walk several blocks and I couldn't use it at night, which forced me to do other things.

Of course, you'd have to have internet access in the first place to get to the site.
But still, great site.

I know exactly what you mean. I stopped speaking to my grandmother years ago.
