Library Internet Acceptable Use Policy
You must accept the Library’s Internet Use Policy to use the library computers or the wireless Internet. Public computer users will be prompted to accept the policy when they log onto a library computer; patrons using laptops must accept the policy using a web browser before wireless access to the Internet will be granted.
Wireless Internet Access
Wireless Internet access is available throughout the entire library, including the library meeting rooms and study rooms. Your device will need to be configured to obtain an IP address automatically using DHCP. In the list of available wireless networks, you must click on EL-Public to connect to the wireless network. Because each person’s device is going to be different you will be responsible for knowing how to configure your own equipment.
Wireless printing is not available at this time. Electrical outlets are available under all library tables.

There are two study rooms available on a first come-first served basis on the second floor for quiet study and discussion.
