Computers/WIFI

Bedford Public Library System makes public computers and internet available to any patron with a library card in good standing. Parents can choose for children under 18 to have access to no internet, filtered internet, or unfiltered internet. Guests who are visiting from out of town can use our computers after providing a valid photo identification.

We provide an open WIFI network in all our library branches which is available to anyone within range. Patrons are welcome to bring devices to the library to access internet through this network.

We also provide stand alone children’s computers and iPads where children can play games but cannot access internet. Patrons should have a library card in good standing and ask staff for access to these devices.
