The Central Library, 1000 Fourth Ave., has offered free wireless Internet access since it opened in May 2004. Eventually, all branches of The Seattle Public 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 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.
