Wireless Internet Access Policy

The McKinley Memorial Library offers wireless Internet access.

Patrons using the Library’s wireless Internet access via their own devices must abide by the McKinley Memorial Library Internet Use Policy.

The wireless Internet access is subject to the same security and filtering systems as the library’s Internet computers.

The Library cannot guarantee that wireless access will be available at all times; that the wireless network will operate with all personal devices; or that access speeds will be consistent among different devices.


The Library’s network is named McKinley Memorial Library.

If a patron’s device is not detecting the Library’s wireless network, the patron may need to consult technical support resources for assistance with their particular device. Staff will do their best to assist patrons, but cannot accept the liability of handling patron equipment.

Designated power outlets are available for patron use. Patrons may also check out a power bank in order to charge a computer or device.


Communications over a wireless network are less secure than through a hard-wired network. Information sent from or to a laptop or other device may be captured by anyone with a wireless device and appropriate software in the patron’s proximity. Using such a network to transmit personal, financial, legal or other sensitive information is not recommended. The wireless connection is used entirely at the risk of the patron.

In addition, virus and security protection for personal devices is the responsibility of the patron.

For the patron’s protection, laptops and devices must not be left unattended. The McKinley Memorial Library assumes no responsibility for any personal equipment that is left unattended.


Patrons are asked to turn off the sound on their device or bring a set of headphones, if needed, to prevent music and other sounds from disturbing others.

The Wireless Internet Access Policy is subject to revision at any time by the McKinley Memorial Library Board of Trustees and/or by the administration of OPLIN. All Internet users must abide by the current active policy in place at the time of use.

Revised and approved by the McKinley Memorial Library Board of Trustees on September 8, 2022.
