Wifi Access

How to connect to wifi
  • Choose the “nvdpl-guest” wireless connection.

  • Open your web browser. You will be redirected to a login page and asked to provide an email address.

  • Once you log in, you will have a choice of going to the Library’s website or the North Vancouver District’s website. If you don’t choose, you will be re-directed to your default home page.

Note: if you have configured your device to block pop-up windows you will not be able to access the log off window. Your connection will be logged off automatically if there is no network activity.
