Wireless Network

Free Wi-Fi The Library has wireless internet access. Our wireless internet access is free of charge, but you must sign in at the service desk. To receive your username and password, you must have a Library Card and Photo ID, or two forms of identification, one of which being a Photo ID.


The username and password you get are one time use only, and last for either 4, 6, or 8 hours, depending on your need. Because of the password requirement each visit, you must check in every time you use the wireless. To get to the screen that asks for your username and password, open your internet browser. While getting a username and password takes a bit of your time, it helps maintain internet security to protect your private information.

The public printer is wirelessly accessible. Ask at the public service desks for directions on its use.
