No library card or pin number is needed to access our wireless. Ventura County Library’s public wireless provides seamless customer Internet availability across all our library branches. Set up your login once and at each branch you only need to accept our Internet Policy to access.
Antivirus - User owned devices have exploded onto networks everywhere with iPads, Androids and smartphones connecting every day. It’s imperative to keep the Ventura County Library network access secure and apply device-specific policies without opening security holes.
Our security software prevents unmanaged devices from spreading viruses on the Library network. In order to keep you secure we now require that you have an up to date antivirus on your device. When you start the login process your device will be scanned, with your permission, in order to ensure an antivirus software is installed, updated and running on your device.
If you do not have an up to date antivirus there is no need to worry, once your device begins the login process you may choose to download a free antivirus program from Microsoft. When the program is downloaded you will be able to access the Internet.
