Temporary Public Computer Service Plan

To keep computer access and library operations safe and hygienic, we’ve had to make some changes.

  • We can only offer limited computing services right now, to keep the library safe for everyone.

  • No guest passes and no reservations, since so few computers are available right now.  You must register for a library card in order to use a public computer.

  • If you don’t have ID or proof of address, you can get an Internet-only card! You can’t borrow books with this card, which expires after one year, but you can use the library computers once each day.
  • Everyone is limited to one 45-minute computer session per day. No extensions, so that more people can use the computers. 

  • Patrons suspected of using several library cards to get more time may lose their computer privileges.

  • You must wear a face mask covering your nose and mouth the whole time you are in the library.

  • In order for everyone to stay at a safe distance, library staff cannot give any hands-on help with computers or technology. We are sorry, but we can’t help you by doing anything like typing or using the mouse for you. No exceptions.

  • When the computer session is over, you must leave your seat and let the next person use the computer right away. 

  • Social distance is important! Patrons can’t share computers if this makes it impossible for other patrons to keep six feet away while using library computers.
  • Library staff may end computer sessions or suspend public computer use at any time.

  • All library policies must be followed while using the public computers.
