Free wireless Internet services are now available in the Main Toledo-Lucas County Public Library downtown as well as at the system s 18 neighborhood branches.
To access the free service, patrons must have an access card or radio with their laptop computer. No additional networking cables are required. Patrons can connect to the network using the identification of T-LCPL. Once the connection is established, Internet access will be available.
The range of the library s wireless access is about 300 feet in diameter from the reference desk. For security purposes, the wireless access is only available to patrons during the hours of operation for the branch they are visiting.
The access to the Internet is filtered as required by the rules and regulations of the Children s Internet Protection Act, which is a federal law enacted by Congress in 2000 to address concerns about access to offensive content over the Internet on school and library computers.
