Wireless Access Policy

Pikes Peak Library District offers FREE wireless access to Library patrons for use with personal notebooks, laptops, and other mobile Internet devices. These access points, also known as hot spots or WiFi, are unsecured portals to the Library’s Internet service, provided at users own risk and accessible during regular Library hours. Wireless access is available at all Libraries. All wireless users are expected to act in a lawful and respectful manner, and are required to conform to the conditions of PPLD's Internet Use Policy.

The Library uses a filter to prevent access to sexually explicit images. Users must recognize that technology is imperfect and that it is therefore not possible to block everything that might be considered objectionable.

Although the Library makes every effort to provide secure access to the Internet, users are at risk for loss or theft of information and should take appropriate cautions with personal information while using Library computers. Information being transmitted could potentially be intercepted by another wireless user.

  • Do not transmit sensitive information (credit card numbers, passwords, account information) while using wireless access.
  • Wireless devices must be configured with protection using current virus definitions.

Use of the Library’s wireless network is entirely at the risk of the user. PPLD is not responsible for any information that is compromised or lost through use of its wireless access. This includes damage or loss due to:

  • Electrical surges
  • Breaches of security by viruses or hacking
  • Disruptions to wireless service

Library staff can provide general information or handouts for connecting your device to the wireless network. Staff can not provide you technical assistance in configuring your portal device or troubleshooting wireless access problems. PPLD does not guarantee that your device will work with the Library’s wireless access. Printed guidelines for some devices are available.

Printing access is not available through wireless connection. Standard computer stations are available for use with public printers.
