The library cannot assure the safety of your data when you use either our wired or wireless Internet access. Connecting your computer to the Internet via our wireless network exposes it to the same viruses and security risks that any Internet connection presents. You are responsible for ensuring that your computer is protected. You use the library’s wireless network at your own risk.
No, you are responsible for your own equipment. The library does not take responsibility for any changes you make to your computer’s settings and cannot make any guarantee about the compatibility of your equipment with the library’s network.
No special encryption settings, user names, or passwords are required for wireless access.
Wireless access uses the Wi-Fi standard (also known as IEEE 802.11b and 802.11g). Your laptop may have wireless built-in, or you can add a Wi-Fi compatible network card to it. Most customers can simply bring their wireless-enabled laptop computer or other wireless device to the library and turn it on. The computer should automatically recognize the wireless network. You will need to select the access point name ending with “lib” or “Library.” You may see multiple access points with different names. Only the access point name ending with “lib” or “Library” will work for public WI-FI access.
Wi-Fi is available at both Central and Fairmont locations.
No. Copying is available only through the library’s copy machines located in front of the Business Center.
