What’s a “download limit of 1GB”?
This is how much data your device can download from the internet through the MBR Libraries Wi-Fi connection. This limit exists to ensure there is fair use of the Wi-Fi service available for all our customers. The Wi-Fi service will also attempt to provide all the people connected in the library an equal share of the speed of the Wi-Fi service.
If you want to check how much of the 1GB limit you’ve used when connected to the MBR Libraries Wi-Fi visit the connection status page while connected to the Wi-Fi. When you reach the 1GB limit on your device, access to the Libraries Wi-Fi will cease immediately.

When can I use the MBR Libraries Wi-Fi?
The Wi-Fi service will become available at each branch location during opening hours.
You will be unable to connect and use the service outside of these hours, unless the branch is open to the public for a special event, program or class that requires the Wi-Fi service to remain turned on.
If you are using the Wi-Fi near closing time, you may be disconnected without any warning or without finishing what you may have been doing. Please take care with how you are using the service around these times and if necessary save your work regularly. Library staff cannot turn the service back on.
