WiFi service in the Central Library


More and more branches of our library system provide Internet access for readers with a membership card or registration card by the use of own laptops and wireless cards. The Central Library also gives you the possibility to surf the internet without our computers.
It is free for readers with a valid membership card, using the barcode of the reader's card and the password (that is month and day of birth); you can use it with own device.
It is free for everyone who are authorized by the membership card valid in any of our libraries to borrow.
The fee of Wifi service for our registered readers is HUF 120 / hour, using a special password purchased at the counter (cashier).
The password is unique, it cannot be replaced.

Let's see the use of WiFi service step by step:

  • You have to select the library network on your own equipment (laptop, mobile phone etc.)

  • You can access to the website of the Metropolitan Ervin Szabó Library via a browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, etc.) without a user name / password.

  • You should skip any security notice regarding to the certificate of the Metropolitan Ervin Szabó Library and continue the connecting process.

  • If you want to surf the web, after entering an URL by typing it in the address-bar of your browser, you will be directed to the required surface.

  • There you should type the user name and password given on your purchased card.

  • Now, you can start browsing.

  • When time limit expires, you will be logged out automatically; however, your previous browsing will be available and can be loaded from the cache for a short time.


  • It is worth mentioning that you can track the time, if you add the pop-up window to your bookmarks on the equipment; it shows warning message when your time is due to expire.
