The Central Library, 1000 Fourth Ave., has offered free wireless Internet access since it opened in May 2004. The Ballard, Beacon Hill, Capitol Hill, Green Lake, Greenwood and North East and Rainier Beach branches have offered the service since January 2006. Eventually, all branches of the Library will offer the service.

Wireless Internet access, commonly referred to as "Wi-Fi," uses radio frequency signals to exchange information between a wireless device and the Internet. There is no time limit on using the service and a password is not required; patrons with Wi-Fi enabled devices often can simply launch a Web browser to establish a connection. Printing is not currently available via a wireless connection.

Library staff members are not able to provide technical assistance and the Library cannot guarantee that patrons will be able to make a wireless connection.

For more information, call the Library at (206) 386-4636.
