The WiFi can now be accessed in the down stairs meeting rooms at the Rock Springs Library. When we switched over to the new wireless system, the signal was no longer strong enough to work in the meeting rooms. Now, and additional access point has been installed.
The new public WiFi network has been completed. The three main libraries now have authenticated wireless access. When a patron accesses the network with their own laptops, they will be asked to create an account on the system. Creating an account is free and simple. A patron only needs to create a username and password, and provide an email address for account activation. After the account has been created, the email address is only used to activate the account and will no longer be needed.
The purpose for the new wireless network is to collect statistics on the number of users that access our public Internet. We use this information to see where technology is being used, and how we can make it better in the future.
