Computer use and printing
Patron computers and library wifi access
The library provides public Internet computers and laptops. Wireless access is provided for mobile devices. The library also provides a printer and document scanner for patron use. The patron computer use policy includes the following:
To access the Internet, patrons must have a current library card or a photo ID. Patrons must have less than $5.00 in fines.
Children seven (7) years and younger must be accompanied by an adult or older (12 years and older) sibling when using the Internet. Children aged 12 and older can use the patron computers as long as they follow Library Use Policies. Parents and legal guardians are responsible for oversight to ensure their children’s use of Internet resources is appropriate and safe.
Patrons who use the Internet in a disruptive manner may be asked to leave the Library for a period of time determined by the Library Director. Individual users are responsible to observe relevant Federal, State, and Local law including copyright, damage to equipment and software, illegal and inappropriate (as determined by library staff) content.
Data may not be stored on library owned workstations. Patrons must save their work to personal data storage devices or environments.
