Computers

The Euless Library has public computers available to Library patrons at no charge. A Euless Library card is required to use them. Public computers have Internet access and basic Microsoft Office Suite (Word, Excel, Powerpoint.)

We also offer access to such resources as:

  • Research databases
  • Educational game sites
  • Web-based e-mail
  • Job-hunting sites
  • Sites used for the electronic activities of everyday life

To provide free, fast and safe Internet access to all citizens we use software that offers such benefits as:

  • Session timing and user authorization
  • Content limitations to preserve bandwidth and to meet local community standards
  • Monitoring to provide security against intentional actions to damage data and equipment

Wireless Access

Wi-Fi is free to all Euless Library users. Wireless access is available throughout the Library building during regular Library hours.

How do I connect to the wireless network?

  • You need a wireless device with built in Wi-Fi or a Wi-Fi network card.
  • Turn on your wireless device and make sure the IP or Network Settings are configured to obtain an IP and DNS address automatically.
  • View available networks.
  • Connect to "euless-guest-wifi" network.

Wireless Printing

If you have an electronic device such as a smartphone, tablet or laptop you may print from your device using a Wireless Printing Service to access the Library printers. 

Due to liability and privacy concerns, Library staff cannot provide technical assistance to configure your electronic device.

Security

Users are encouraged to install the latest anti-virus, spyware and firewall protection on their laptop computers before using the Library's unsecured wireless Internet. The Library is not responsible for any damage caused to hardware or software while using the Library's wireless connection.

Responsibilities of Library Staff and of Users

The library reserves the right to terminate an Internet session that disrupts library services or that involves user behavior that violates library policies. Library employees are authorized to take prompt and appropriate actions to enforce the Rules of Conduct.

Parents are responsible for their minor children's use of the library's resources and facilities. Restriction of a child's access to the Internet is the responsibility of the parent or guardian. When parents give permission for their child to have a library card, they are giving that child permission to use the Internet in our library.

Privacy

Internet users must be sensitive to the fact that workstations are in public areas and, therefore, images on the screen are subject to view by a wide audience. Also, to provide for resource allocation and user authorization, monitoring may be undertaken. Such monitoring will be in the interest of content limitations to preserve bandwidth and to meet local community standards. Monitoring will also provide security against intentional actions to damage data and equipment.

The Rules of Conduct apply to the behavior of individuals using electronic equipment and resources. Users are urged to respect the sensibilities of others when accessing information that may reasonably be deemed offensive to someone else. Failure to follow this policy could result in loss of computer privileges.

Users are cautioned that the Internet is not a secure environment. Personal information included in all transactions, files and communications may be subject to unauthorized access by third parties.

Texas state law exempts records of library or library systems from the public's right of access to public information. The Euless Public Library respects the confidentiality of those using its electronic resources and will only release library records as required by law or for the library's operations.

Under the Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act (USA PATRIOT Act) and the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, federal agents, with a search warrant, may obtain records of the materials you have in your current record and they may monitor your Internet usage and e-mail content. These laws also prohibit library workers from informing you if federal agents have obtained information about you.
