By using the WiFi service at the Library you agree that you are subject to the Librarys Internet Policy. Copies of the policy can be found at www.apl.org/about/policies.
How to Connect:
A laptop, PDA or other device with WiFi capability that supports the WiFi standard IEEE 802.11b or IEEE 802.11g may be used to access the network. Your device should automatically detect a new connection. If your SSID is set to Any, you will be able to connect. If needed, the SSID is aplpublic. No user names or passwords are required. Wireless access points are located throughout the building, although signal strength may vary.
Please note: The Library expects patrons to be able to configure their own equipment to access the wireless network and cannot guarantee that you will be able to connect. The Library is not responsible for any loss or damage to personal equipment. WiFi is less secure than a wired network. The Library does not offer any laptops or peripheral equipment (power strips, wireless network cards, cables, printers, etc) to the public. Staff may require patrons who fail to comply with the Library’s Internet Policy to terminate their wireless session and leave the Library building.
The scanner computer is located in front of and slightly to the east of the Reference Desk on the second floor. This is a 30 minute stand-up station with a feeder scanner; login with your own library card number. ID cards, etc., can be fed through the feeder scanner with a carrier sheet that is available at the Reference Desk. The scanner computer also has Adobe Acrobat 9 Standard edition.
Printing is 15¢/page (for black & white; 35¢/page for color).
A flatbed scanner is available in the Digital Creation Lab at iMac #6. You will need to show photo ID to access the lab.
Two computers are available on the second floor, along the north wall behind the Reference Desk. These computers have limited internet access to the Insurance Marketplace website (Affordable Care Act's healthcare.gov site), as well as links to the Department of Workforce Development. These computers do not require a library card number to login. You can apply for insurance on the Marketplace or get information on the Affordable Care Act, or apply for jobs through DWD's JobCenter site and access any other information on the DWD site, including Unemployment Insurance.
Library staff are not licensed or allowed to assist you with applying on the ACA site, filling out your DWD profile for job searching, or applying for Unemployment Insurance.
