New, improved wireless printing is coming soon to Prescott Public Library. Please look for instructions and information in the coming weeks and if you need to print from your device in the meantime, check with the Ask a Librarian Desk about your options!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do I need a library card? No. You will need a library card to access most research databases.
  • Is the network secure? The PPL network is an open public access network. For sensitive information, use of SSL encrypted Web pages is recommended. WiFi users should maintain soft-ware to protect against viruses and spyware.
  • Can I print from my laptop? Wireless printing (coming soon!) is available for 10¢ per page, 50¢ per page for color.
  • What are the rules? Use of the Internet and computers is a privilege. Abuse of PPL computer and Internet use policy will result in cancellation of this privilege.
  • Is the network secure?  The PPL network uses encryption to protect the wireless information sent and received by your device within the confines of the Prescott Public Library. Nearly all web sites on the Internet use SSL/TLS encryption to protect sensitive information communicated between your device and the web site in question. WiFi users should maintain personal security software to protect against malware and viruses on the Internet.
