LIBRARY WI-FI SERVICE

We’ve made some changes and it is now easier to “Log on @ the Library” . . . no Library Card Number or PIN necessary.

Just connect to LIBRARY NAME(i.e. Main Guest) GUEST WI FI. When the policy screen appears read the text and touch "I Agree" to begin. (Note: The ease of access means you will not be able to print from your mobile device.)

Internet Policy


WHAT EQUIPTMENT DO I NEED?

Laptop computer, PDA, or other device with a wireless network interface card and a charged battery. There are a limited number of electrical outlets available.


HOW SECURE IS THE WIRELESS CONNECTION?

Information sent to or from your wireless device can be captured by anyone else with a wireless device and the appropriate software.


IS TECHNICAL SUPPORT AVAILABLE WITH MY WIRELESS CONNECTION OR PERSONAL DEVICE?

For further assistance in getting connected to the library’s wireless, see an employee at any information desk.

We are not able to assist with connection problems that are due to your device’s settings, firewall or viruses.


IS PRINTING AVAILABLE?

Not from a wireless device. To print in the library you will need to save your material to a USB and go to the library public computers. If what you need to print is not something you can save, then you will need to redo your search and work using one of the library’s public computers.


HOW DO I SET UP MY COMPUTER?

You likely will not need to change your computer’s settings to connect; simply launch your web browser and touch ACCESS when the blue screen appears. If you cannot connect immediately, use the following troubleshooting tips.
