WiFi for libraries

Libraries are a valuable source of information and often act as a community hub for the general public. Guest WiFi can help support this, by improving a libraries digital service for its residents, while maximizing localized learning through an interactive, informative and fun experience for visitors of all ages.

Building a picture

By utilizing data which shows what visitors are interested in, how they move around the building and how often they come back, libraries can ensure they are delivering the right information – to engage and educate visitors through events, new resources, activities, courses and workshops.

Safe, secure and family friendly

Purple demonstrates best practice in terms of WiFi legal and security compliance, so it is the perfect solution for any library that wishes to provide a free service.

Content filtering automatically blocks blacklisted sites containing inappropriate content, or sites which have been specifically removed at the venue’s request. We are a partner of Open DNS, who use the Internet Watch Foundation’s watchlist to block inappropriate content. All of this ensures that the WiFi is always safe, secure and family-friendly.

Digital Inclusion

Libraries are great places to access the digital world, empowering people who lack opportunity to get online at home. Librarians are also on hand to help disadvantaged members of the community to get online, supporting the government’s Digital Inclusion initiative. WiFi also helps libraries to deliver combined public services such as looking for job, applying for passports and managing tax etc., all from one location.
