County Libraries Offering Telecommuting Options During Metro Surge
In an effort to help commuters who are impacted by Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority’s (WMATA) Surge 10, staff from Montgomery County Public Libraries (MCPL) stated they have alternative work sites for commuters.
MCPL library card holders will have access to Wi-Fi internet access, quiet study rooms and free charging stations for phones and tablets.
“These are services we offer anyway, so we want to remind people that we are here,” said Administrative Specialist Regina Holyfield-Jewett.
Surge 10 is expected to cause delays on the entire Red Line between Oct. 29 and Nov. 22.
Other resources for card holders include photocopiers, printers and laptops for use at the Kensington Park, Long Branch, Silver Spring and Twinbrook branches.
