Wi-Fi Hotspot

In addition to the computers we provide at each branch for patron use, each branch also offers a hotspot for access to the Internet for wireless-enabled laptops and other devices. This wi-fi network is available daily from 8am to 11pm.

Use of the Library's wireless network implies acceptance of the Library's patron use agreement.

Printing

JCPL now features PrinterOn wireless printing from anywhere!

Through this web-based service or free downloadable app, you can now send print jobs from any computer on the Internet -- home computer, laptop, smart phone or mobile device -- and pick them up at the JCPL location of your choosing.

Prints are black and white, 10 cents per page, and may be collected at the circulation desk within 72 hours of printing.

Follow the instructions below, or download our PrinterOn Patron Booklet below to get started, or stop in and a staff member will assist you.
