Wireless

library-wifiIf you're looking for a place where you can use your laptop or mobile device to surf the internet, check your email, finish homework, or do some research, then the library has got you covered.

Wireless internet access (Wi-Fi) is available at all five library branches in the Citrus County Library System. Use your wireless enabled device (like a laptop, tablet, or smart phone) to access the internet for web browsing or email. 

Please be certain your usage is restricted to basic web browsing or related activities. Advanced use, such as use for or need of specialized ports for SMTP, Remote Desktop, Corporate Intranets, etc., are not provided for on our wired or wireless connection. The library wireless network is compatible with 802.11b/g/n standards, and should work for every major laptop or device.

Wi-fi is free and available at all library locations:

Network Identifier or SSID: Public Wireless.

Trouble Connecting?
    • Make sure your device is wireless (Wi-Fi) capable. Blue Tooth technology is not Wi-Fi. 
    • Is the wireless card or built-in technology turned on?
    • Is the device in "default" configuration so that it will pick up any broadcast?
    • Are other wireless networks overriding ours? Our wireless broadcasts as "Public Wireless." Is this the network you are connected to?
    • Is the device locked down by protection software or is wireless access disabled?

Printing is not available using the library's wireless connection. To access a printer, sign up to use the library's public internet work stations.

The public wireless network employs limited security, and the library advises that you do not conduct sensitive transactions (such as banking or shopping) over the wireless network. Data transfer between your laptop or mobile device and the wireless access point (WAP) are not secure. We suggest you install or activate the native firewall in Windows XP/Vista or some other third party program to ensure secure communication and data transfer. (This is good practice for any public wireless connection you may use, such as a coffeeshop, restaurant, or store).

The library bears no responsibility for presumed hacking or personal security breaches. Use of the wireless network is at your own risk.
