The Free Library offers wireless networking to visitors at all locations during its operating hours FREE of charge. This service connects your laptop or other wireless-enabled device to the Internet through the Library's network. To access the Internet, simply launch your web browser, enter your Library card number and PIN and begin surfing.
The Library staff is not trained to troubleshoot your wireless device—if you want to use this service, you are expected to be familiar with your own equipment.
Note: You must initially allow pop-ups in order to log in to the wireless network.
Unlike the public access computers, there are no time limits when using your own wireless equipment. However, the Library reserves the right to disconnect any device at any time in order to manage the network and provide equal opportunity for wireless access to all users.
Wireless access is reserved for Free Library card holders. If you don’t have a Library card, please go to the nearest service desk.
No. We are developing an update to allow wireless printing to the Library system’s public printers, but at the moment, printers are not part of the wireless network. If you need to print, save your work to a portable format (flash drive) and sign up for a session at one of the Library’s public computers.
Anything can interfere with the radio waves of the wireless connection—if you have a problem connecting to the network, try moving to a different location.
All users of the wireless network must comply with our Electronic Resources and the Internet Policy Access Policy. Access to violent and or sexually explicit material is prohibited. All sessions are filtered in accordance with the Children’s Internet Protection Act.
It is highly recommended that patrons have installed and are running some up-to-date Antivirus / Antispam software. Also, it is recommended that privacy software (such as a personal firewall) be in place as the network is not secure (see Disclaimers below).
The wireless network will be available during library operating hours.
