Computers, Internet & Wi-Fi
Computers & Internet Access
Computers are available for persons of all ages. A current library card in good standing is required to access a computer. Visitors may provide appropriate identification and request a guest pass to use a computer. All computer users must agree to abide by the Computer Use Policy.
Most library computers guarantee users a 60-minute session. When no waiting list exists, customers may continue using the computer as long as needed, or until such time that there is a waiting list. We do not accept advanced reservations. Computers are assigned on a first come, first serve basis. Individuals who are on the waiting list will have five minutes to occupy an available computer before their reservation is canceled.
Wi-Fi with a Boost
All branches are equipped with free, high-speed internet. We also have technology at all locations to boost Wi-Fi signals outside the branch buildings.
Chromebooks are available for checkout and for in-library use. Simply bring your library card to the circulation desk and ask a staff person for assistance.
Branch Computer Labs
Several branches have computer labs. When not in use for classes, they are open for general use.
