Each location of the Hamden Public Library has computers available for public use. Users are expected tp comply with the library’s Computer and Internet Use Policy when using the public computers. Printing is available.
Wireless access is available inside the library, as well as in the parking lot at Miller Memorial Library at 2901 Dixwell Avenue. The network name is “Hamden Guest.” No password is required.
All three branches of the Hamden Public Library now have mobile hotspots available for lending. A WiFi hotspot is a device you can use to connect a mobile-enabled device, such as a laptop, smartphone or tablet, to the Internet. The hotspot is portable, so you can connect your device almost wherever you are, like at home, on the bus or in the park.
Each of our branches has a Kwikboost charging station available to users. The station can charge up to 8 phones at a time at full speed and supports most major phones including iPhones, Android, Blackberry and Windows.
Charging ports include:
3 Apple Lightning for iPhones (5 & newer), iPads and iPods
3 Micro USB for non-Apple devices
2 USB type-C for newer non-Apple devices
This service is free for all library users.
Note that these stations are not monitored and you are responsible for the security of your device. Please do not leave it unattended. However, we do ask for users to maintain social distancing while waiting for their devices to charge.
One-on-one computer help is available. Request an appointment with one of our Digital Navigators.
