The New Milford Library now offers free wireless Internet access for patrons to use with their notebook/laptop computers or other wireless devices.
To use this service to access the Internet, patrons need a library card.
Patrons will need to provide their own notebook/laptop computer or other wireless device with 802.11b or 802.11g wireless networking.
If their notebook/laptop computer or other device does not include wireless networking, patrons must purchase one of a variety of external notebook/laptop pc cards and USB devices; the Library cannot provide any of these devices for loan or purchase.
Patron Access Privacy
Any patron information collected (i.e. library barcode) by the wireless provider will be deleted after 24 hours.
Limitations and Disclaimers
We have one access point which enables wireless access to be available in many areas of the Library (i.e. in the general adult reference area, the fiction section of the Library, the mezzanine and the Connecticut Room), however some “dead” spots may exist where patrons may have trouble accessing the Internet or staying online. This problem may be eliminated by moving to a different location within the library.
The wireless internet access we offer is unfiltered, however, patrons must agree to abide by the New Milford Public Library’s Internet Use Policy. This policy states the limitations of internet access, patron responsibilities for using that access, and examples of acceptable and unacceptable uses.
The Library’s wireless network is not secure. Information sent to and from your notebook/laptop computer or other wireless device may be captured by anyone else with a wireless device and the appropriate software.
Library staff is not able to provide technical assistance and no guarantee can be made that you will be able to make a wireless connection.
The Library assumes no responsibility for the safety of equipment or for notebook/laptop computer or other wireless device configurations, security, or data files resulting from connection to the Library’s wireless access.
