Culver-Union Township Public Library offers wireless Internet access to all patrons for use with laptops, tablets, mobile phones and other devices. These services are available on Library property during operating hours only.
For the convenience of our patrons, no passwords are required to connect to the wireless network. No encryption is used on the network; therefore information sent from any device on the wireless network may be visible to third parties. Patrons should be cautious when transmitting confidential information (credit card numbers, passwords, etc.) or accessing website with confidential information (banking, online shopping, etc.)
Library staff can provide information on how to connect to the wireless network but may not reconfigure or alter settings on a patron’s device to allow it to connect. The Library cannot guarantee that a device will operate properly on the wireless network. No promises are made in regards to quality of service. Public wireless access is filtered through a firewall which only allows through common programs and services: patrons should be aware that some applications may not function properly.
Printing is not available from the wireless network – patrons must print from a public access computer in the computer lab. Library staff will not provide storage media to transfer files to public access computers. Patrons must provide their own storage device or access their files through email or other means.
Wireless access is to be used only for legal purposes. Any suspected abuse will result in a warning; further abuse will result in the device being blocked from wireless access. See the Library’s Internet Policy, posted in the computer lab or available at the Adult Circulation Desk or on the Library website, for more details.
This Policy will be posted on the Main level and in the Computer Lab.
