Wi-Fi

Use is subject to the District's Internet and Wireless Use Policy and Library Rules of Conduct.

Things to know before you begin:

  • You must have your own wireless device with a Wi-Fi network card built-in or installed.
  • You are responsible for knowing how to configure your own equipment and how to access wireless networks through your own device's operating system. Library staff can not configure, diagnose or modify a library patron's equipment.
  • Patrons under 18 are subject to the same rules governing Internet access by minor children using District computers. Patrons under 18 are required to use filtered access unless they have a signed parental permission slip on file in the library allowing unfiltered access to the Internet.
  • Patrons under 18 who have parental approval on file must use their wireless devices in the adult areas of the library.
  • The Library District is not responsible for any damage to personal equipment or software that may occur as a result of using the District's wireless network. It is highly recommended that you use anti-virus, firewall software and updated patches when accessing the District's wireless network.

General information for all systems:

  • All wireless standards are supported
    (802.11 a, b, g and n).
  • Please set your computer to obtain an IP address automatically (DHCP). This setting can be found in your wireless card properties settings.
  • Signal strength will vary depending upon your location in the building. You may need to relocate for optimum signal strength.
  • The speed you will experience is determined by a number of variables including proximity to the access point and the number of users on the system.
