My opinionated snark: if the people without broadband on good cell coverage in Greenwood need that coverage to work or do homework, they can always go to the Greenwood Community Center. on Monday or Wednesday.

You can use the free Wi-Fi anywhere outside Greenwood – from the parking lot, the outdoor shelter, or the baseball field.

If you’d like to use the Wi-Fi inside the Center, you can reserve a time slot for your family.

Available slots are Monday and Wednesday

8:30am to 10am,10:30 am to 12 pm,1pm to 2:30pm, 3pm to 4:30pm.

To reserve one of these time slots, please call (434) 466-3389 or email [email protected].

COVID safety precautions will be utilized inside the building, including temperature checks, screening questions, and face coverings.
