Wireless Hotspots

Wireless Internet connectivity is available at all of our branch libraries. Access is free and available 24 hours a day.

Some things to remember if you use this service:

Terms of use. Users are responsible for acquainting themselves with and adhering to the Internet Code of Ethics.

** In order to protect its network and users, the Library reserves the right to terminate a connection at any time or to withdraw wireless access entirely. **

Security. The wireless connection is not secure. No encryption is employed. This means that it is possible for your transmissions to be intercepted. Conducting financial transactions over this connection is not advised.

Safety. The Internet can be a hostile environment, therefore users are strongly advised to employ appropriate protection, including a firewall and up-to-date antivirus and anti-spyware software. The library is not responsible for any damage your equipment may suffer while using this connection.

Settings. Some configuration of your equipment may be necessary to use a library’s wireless connection.  Configuring your device is your own responsibility, not the library’s. (After all, it is your device.)  If you do change any settings, don’t forget to restore them after you’ve finished.

Email. Only web-based email is possible.

Printing. Unfortunately we are not able to provide printing service to patrons using our wireless network.  If you would like to print something off, you can save it to a portable drive and print from one of our public access machines if one is available.

Sound. When using your device within the library, you must use headphones or mute the sound.

Feedback. If you have comments or suggestions, please let us know by emailing them to cjanes@nsar.library.ns.ca. If you encountered difficulties, please include the following information:

  • time and date
  • library location
  • your device & operating system
  • nature of the problem
