Wireless Computing

Free access is provided in all the San Diego Public Library locations. WiFi is available at all times the libraries are open until 15 minutes before the library closing time. We invite you to bring your laptop to one of our locations and access the Internet.

To access the Internet, simply launch your Web browser then read and accept the disclaimer. Your computer's home page will appear and you may begin surfing immediately.

Security Issues

When using any network connection, including the wireless Public Network, do not enable file sharing or print sharing. If you do so, other people may gain access to your hard drive and files, or misuse your computer. It is also highly recommended that your laptop has up-to-date antivirus software installed.

Prohibited Activities

Illegal or inappropriate use of the Internet is not permitted. If inappropriate images are displayed in view of others in the Library, the offending party will be asked to leave the building.

The library discourages the use of personal Wi-Fi hotspots originating from cell phones, "MiFi" wireless routers, Wi-Fi controlled GoPros, Wi-Fi extenders, repeaters, and other similar networking equipment within the library, as they can disrupt the free wireless network.
