Hawaii's Public Libraries will Offer Free Wi-Fi Starting April 2
FREE WI-FI STARTING APRIL 2
Free wireless Internet access will be available in public libraries statewide beginning on Monday, April 2.
"Our patrons will be very excited to know we have expanded our free wi-fi service from two Oahu libraries Kaneohe and Salt Lake-Moanalua Public Libraries to nearly all 50 libraries statewide," said State Librarian Richard Burns. "While the interim Manoa Public Library will not have wi-fi, the new replacement Library will, and we look forward to its opening in a few months. Thanks to generous funding from Hawaii's Access for All Grant, we can continue to provide Hawaii's people with up to date technology tools, including wireless Internet access."
Patrons with personal laptops, smartphones, tablets, e-readers or other mobile devices may access the Internet in the public service areas of the library during open hours. Users are advised to:
- Adjust the settings on your personal device to receive the wireless signal.
- Provide a valid library card number and PIN.
- Agree to the HSPLS Internet Acceptable Use policies. All users are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the Internet Acceptable Use policies, which describe appropriate usage in the library, as well as risks and benefits of using the service.
- Bring your own personal headphones if you wish to hear audio on your device.
- Attend to your personal devices and belongings at all times.
- Wi-fi signal will terminate 15 minutes before library closes.
- Wireless printing is not available.
- Wi-fi users are cautioned that it is a public network; complete online safety is impossible to guarantee.
The wireless equipment is provided by Hawaii's Access for All Grant through the Broadband Technology Opportunities Program, funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, and leveraged with Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Opportunity Online funds. Matching funds were provided by the Friends of the Library of Hawaii, the Omidyar Ohana Fund, through the Hawaii Community Foundation, and Alexander & Baldwin Foundation.
