Computers & Printing

All of our branches have computers with internet access for you to use for email, or to access the catalog, our electronic databases, and information about your account. To reserve a computer you need your library card. Guest passes are for children only. Your computer use will be limited based on availability. Most locations also offer free computer classes.

Access: What you view is not private and other people can see it – be considerate. When you send information on the internet it may be possible for others to see it on public computers. Use internet computers at your own risk.

Public adult and youth computers shut down 15 minutes before the branch closes. Guest computers shut down 10 minutes before the branch closes.

Filtering: The internet workstations have filters that block explicit sexual content. Members over age 18, with proof of age, can request the filtering be temporarily removed. Although filters are in place, restriction of a child’s access to the internet is the responsibility of the parent or legal guardian.

Printing: Printing and copying are available at all locations. It is 20 cents for black and white and 30 cents for color.

Wi-Fi Printing with Your Laptop: When you are at a library branch, connect your laptop computer to the library’s wireless network and select the branch you are visiting from the list below. This printing software only works while you are visiting a branch.

Software required for using the library wireless printing service is safe to install, however the library cannot be liable for damage to personal hardware, software, or changes made to your computer resulting from use of this software.
