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.
Where is con Ed??? No trucks in sight. I’m going to switch providers ASAP!!!
Con Ed? You have the wrong state…it’s CL&P or UI here, neither takes home roses.
You right!! I meant CL&p— where are they???
obviously a newbie -should have stayed in Manhattan – either UES or UWS all is fine
Post storm response has been beyond reproach. Between 5am and 5pm they managed to get zero percent of the town restored… I mean, how could it possibly have been any better? I am so glad that they said they put pre positioned crews in every town….
