Wireless Hotspots and Public Computers

Wireless (Wi-Fi) internet access is available at the South Branch and the North Branch of the Cold Lake Public Library. If your computer or PDA is Wi-Fi enabled, you can connect to the internet free of charge. You do not require a library card to access the wireless network, but printing from the wireless network is not available. Users of the wireless network are bound by the terms of the library's Use of Computer Policy. Users are responsible for protecting their own devices from viruses and spyware.

Each branch of the Cold Lake Public Library has public computers that are free to use. They have Microsoft Office installed on them. Printing can be done in black and white or colour. Scanning is available at no cost at each each branch as well.
