Wireless Internet & Printing

Kitchener Public Library provides free wireless Internet access at all locations. The support of the Ontario Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport for the implementation of wireless Internet is gratefully acknowledged.

How to connect: Access the network/wireless connection settings for your device. Select network “KPL Main" or the community library location. Open your web browser and the library's Internet Access Policy will appear. Read and accept the Internet Access Policy to connect.

It is the responsibility of library customers to take appropriate measures to secure their data and equipment, and to configure their device to access the wireless connection.
