Technology

Free WiFi at NWPLThe Norman Williams Public Library is pleased to offer you access to the Internet.

The library has several computers on the library mezzanine for the use of all patrons and visitors who are requested to pick up a number for a designated work station at the front desk. On rare occasions, if demand is great, computer use may be limited to half-hour increments.

The Internet is also accessible to all users who bring their own laptops or devices. Access to the Internet at the library via our wireless network is encrypted and requires a password available at the Front Desk. The library cannot be held responsible for theft or loss of any information transmitted or stored, such as cookies, passwords, etc.

The Library does not monitor and has no control over the information accessed over the Internet and cannot be held responsible for its content. We do not censor or protect anyone from controversial or inappropriate resources. As with other library materials, restriction of a child's access (under 18) to the Internet is the responsibility of the parent or legal guardian. We recommend that parents or guardians guide their child's use of the Internet by direct personal observation.

One on one tutorials are available to help patron’s access information on the Internet. Please schedule a time for a session at the front desk.
