Free Wi-Fi (802.11b/g), internet jacks, and electrical outlets are available throughout the building. Internet connections provided by the library are unsecured and unencrypted; use at your own risk. In order to use the Wi-Fi you must accept our Acceptable Use Policy, which should appear automatically when you select the cpl network.

Printing

If you need to print while using your laptop or mobile device, you should use our wireless printing service. You can print to our high-quality printers, and your print job will stay in the queue until the close of business the day it is sent.

Public Computers

CPL has nearly 150 computers for public use. We also offer computer classes throughout the year. Public computers are filtered per Michigan State law. Please note:
  • The Internet Lab is restricted to 18-years-and-older by law because it provides unfiltered web access on 24 machines
  • Public computers will only store your working files until the end of the day. Be sure to save your files to a USB flash drive or web storage
  • For your protection, the ability to install new programs on public computers has been disabled
