The Adams Free Library offers wireless Internet access to library users with wireless enabled devices. The provisions set forth in the Library’s Internet Use Policy and Acceptable Use Guidelines are applicable to wireless network access.
Our network supports a wide range of laptop computers. Most wireless network cards will be compatible. However, the library can make no guarantees as to the compatibility of a library user’s device with the Library’s network. Library staff does not provide wireless access support and will not install of modify hardware of software.
Communication through wireless network should not be considered secure. Library users are responsible for selecting and installing security protection and current virus definitions on their wireless devices. The Library is not responsible for damage to hardware or software, transmission of computer viruses, loss of data or email, or any harm resulting from the use of an unsecured server. It is strongly advised that personal, financial or otherwise sensitive information not be transmitted through the wireless network.
Printing from the wireless network is not currently available. Files can be saved to a device or emailed.
The wireless network can accommodate interactive searches on the web. It cannot accommodate the downloading of large document files. Therefore, downloading of software, images, music, etc. from the web onto library users’ equipment is not permitted. Library users will be asked to terminate any activity that adversely impacts the network’s performance.
When using wireless-enabled devices to listen to music, dialog, sound effects, etc., library users must use earphones to make the sound inaudible to others. If sound is heard despite the earphones, the library user must lower the sound level or turn the equipment off.
Should a wireless device require an electrical outlet the patron must see the library staff for a designated area.
