Coronavirus Local Impact

BOSTON (AP) — The main branch of the Boston Public Library is reopening to the public on a limited basis for the first time since March to allow city residents to use the computers.

Library officials and Mayor Marty Walsh said in a statement Tuesday the program will allow people to search for jobs, attend online classes, download ebooks, and do other online tasks.

In addition, the library is providing free, 24-hour, outdoor Wi-Fi access at nine branch locations across the city.

Residents can sign up for a two-hour window to use computers at the main branch in Copley Square.
