The library provides its patrons with an open, high-speed wireless network that can be used with wireless-network-enabled portable devices to access the Internet.

How do I connect?

• Have a Wi-Fi connection that will auto-detect our signal
• Set it to auto-detect
• Attach to “Library-Public”
• Start your browser
• Accept our Acceptable Use Policy

It won’t connect to the network.

If you have an add-in card (not a network card that is integrated into your system), make sure it is “seated” properly. To do this, save your work, shut your system down, remove your network adapter, and replace it, making sure to secure it firmly in the PC. If you are using a USB adapter, disconnect, and then reconnect the adapter, and try to connect again.

No internet after connecting

Sometimes, a computer will “see” the network, but can’t “get out”. If this is the case, the problem could be that you have a firewall enabled that is preventing incoming traffic, outgoing traffic, or both. You may need to adjust your firewall settings to properly utilize the network.

Clicking Accept on the policy doesn't work

If you are using MS Internet Explorer, there is a program it wants your permission to run. Look at the top of your browser screen, just below the URL bar. You should see a yellowish bar asking if you want to run a file. Run the file, and the “Accept” button should work, transferring you to your home page. This process should only need to be completed once.

How safe is the network?

Generally, the network is safe to use. However, it is an open system. As such, the Delaware Division of Libraries cannot and does not guarantee that your computer will be protected if you connect to the network; use of the network is at your own risk. It is recommended that your computer have an antivirus program and a firewall program to help ensure its security.


The library also has a number of computers that our patrons may use that provides internet access, Microsoft Office, and other utilities. Computers may be accessed by anyone with a valid Delaware Library Card. For access to these computers, see our circulation desk.

We also have four computers in our children's area that are dedicated for children under the age of 12. Two of them are regular computers with access to the internet (with parental approval) and two are loaded with games and learning activities for the children to enjoy.

Additionally there is a computer dedicated for job searching and resume building in the computer lab.
