How to connect to the Library’s Wi-Fi 

All our libraries have free Wi-Fi that anyone can use. This Wi-Fi network is called ‘Link Free’.  

To connect to the Wi-Fi,  select ‘Link Free’ as your network. The log in page should open automatically. 

If you have not used our Wi-Fi before you will need to create a ‘Link Free’ account. You don’t need a library card to sign up, but you will need to supply your email address and a mobile phone number.  

Once you have created a Link Free account, you will be able to log in to the Wi-Fi network at any of our libraries using your email address and the password you created.
