Internet & WiFi

The Roswell Public Library makes it possible to access the World Wide Web using your own internet capable device.

WiFi & Wired Internet Access

The Roswell Public offers both WiFi and wired Internet access. Your device must have a Wireless Interface, or you may connect with an Ethernet connection (using an RJ-45 Cat 5 connection) and a patch cable.

Wireless is available throughout the library. Wired ports are available in the study rooms, study alcoves, at the tables near the Reference Desk, the periodicals area or the windowed reading areas.

To access the Wireless network, open your available networks and select "COR-Guest".  Once you are connected you have to agree to the City of Roswell Terms of Agreement by clicking "Accept" at the bottom of the screen.  After clicking accept it will take you to the City of Roswell's homepage and you are now connected to our Guest Wireless connection!  If these terms do not come up after showing you are connected to the network try opening your Internet browser for these terms to appear.
