Wireless Internet Access (Wi-Fi)

Carter Memorial Library offers wireless connections to the library's internet service.

All users are expected to follow the library's Internet Use Policy, especially as it pertains to acceptable use in a public setting.


Carter Memorial Library provides internet access via a wireless access point (Wi-Fi).

Most laptops and mobile devices are configured to connect to any available wireless connections. In those cases you can simply turn on your laptop or mobile device, let it automatically find the access point (SSID) Carter Memorial Library, authorize it to connect to the access point, and begin surfing the web.

If your laptop or mobile device is configured to only connect to an incompatible wireless network, you will need to know how to change that yourself or consult the documentation appropriate for your equipment.

Not all locations are adjacent to electrical outlets. For safety reasons, please do not run extension cords or power cords across aisles.

Beyond providing these instructions, library staff cannot assist you with configuring your laptop or mobile device. Even if there was a way to overcome liability issues, the fact is that it would be virtually impossible to keep staff trained to deal with the vast array of laptops, mobile devices, and operating systems available on the market.


The Carter Memorial Library does not offer peripheral equipment (power strips, wireless network cards, mouse pads, cables, printers, etc.) to the public.

No guarantee is provided that a laptop or mobile device will be able to make a successful connection.

The Carter Memorial Library assumes no liability for any loss or damage to the user's data or equipment or other injury that may occur from the individual's use of the library's internet services.
