The Westport Library planned to open today at 1 p.m.
At 12:40, people of all ages were already lined up outside.
The library let them in. All afternoon long, they kept coming.
After a recent storm — we’ve had so many, employees forgot which one — the library realized only 120 people could access wireless simultaneously.
So the library doubled its access points. They figured that would handle everyone.
By mid-afternoon, Wi-Fi was maxed out.
Library director Maxine Bleiweis is in the midst of a long-planned trip to Turkey. But — true to form — she checked in often, yesterday and today.
Officials promise that Friday night’s Teen Haunted Library — for grades 6 through 12 — is still on.
It might be the only Halloween Westport sees this year.
