Wireless Access

Free Wireless Access

We provide free wireless Internet access at all three of our libraries.

How to Access the Wireless Network

Here's how it works:

  • Choose the “nvdpl-guest” wireless connection.
  • Open your web browser. You will be redirected to a login page and asked to provide an email address.
  • Once you log in, you will have a choice of going to the Library’s website or the North Vancouver District’s website. If you don’t choose, you will be re-directed to your default home page.

Note that if you have configured your device to block pop-up windows you will not be able to access the log off window. Your connection will be logged off automatically if there is no network activity.

The wireless service is provided for free by the District of North Vancouver and North Vancouver District Public Library with help from the Public Library Services Branch (BC Ministry of Education).
