Free WiFi

We now have wireless printing available in-house. **Disclaimer** This service may have problems working with your device. Mac users and Windows 8 users may not be able to print wirelessly. The security on your device may not be compatible with this service.

In the event that you are unable to print wirelessly, please see the Information Desk for further options.

*Windows 7 users! Before you begin, you may need to change User Account Controls. Go to Start, Type in “UAC”.  At the pop-up screen, move the slider bar down to “Never Notify”. Reboot your computer.

Instructions for wireless printing:

  1. Visit http://192.168.1.220:30044/clientlauncher and download the print client to your laptop from our library WiFi. (Click “Run”, override any security prompts)
  2. After you run the program, you will see a box pop-up which says “EnvisionWare LPT:One”. This means that you are now connected to the program which will allow you to print wirelessly.
  3. When you are ready to print, simply click your print button, then select the “Black & White Printer on 192.168.1.220” and hit the “Print” button.
  4. You will be asked to provide a log-in name. Any name will do. You will then be told how much your job will cost. Once you agree, your job will be sent to the Print Release Station located near the Information Desk. You can log in there with the same login name you used to create your print job. Then simply pay and print!

You can stop the EnvisionWare LPT:One print client at any time. Or you can leave it running and send multiple jobs to the printer during your stay here at the library. Be assured that the software does not remain on your computer – when you are done printing, the software is removed.

 


On the Adult Level

Stand-Up Email

We have a 15-minute Internet terminal for quick checks of
email or brief internet searches. Non Derry Public Library card-holders can
stop at the Front Desk for a guest pass for internet access that will time-out
after 15 minutes. No more waiting in line just to check
your email!

Internet Access

Ten computers are dedicated internet access computers. Internet users
must agree to our internet policy. Just log on with your Derry Public Library card and PIN (or obtain a guest pass at the Front Desk). You can also reserve a computer for a time later in the day at your convenience. Internet sessions are limited to one hour, and time will be automatically extended if no one is waiting.

One computer is dedicated to our subscription databases. There are two computers marked as “Special Reserve” for those needing extended time to work on projects, take tests, complete online job applications, e-file their taxes, or fill out the forms for the Affordable Care Act.
