Credentials for Access

In order to gain access to the Computer Lab, patrons must have one of two things:

  • A library card in good standing (no overdue materials or fines) with a blue internet sticker OR
  • A day pass.  Day passes can be used if you forget your library card or are just visiting for the day.  You must present a photo ID with your current address in order to obtain a day pass.

Patrons are guaranteed at least one half hour on a computer. When we are busy, users are rotated out depending on who has been using a computer the longest.  If you get rotated out, you can come back in a half hour.  We don’t limit how many times you can come back.

Patrons must vacate their computer within 5 minutes of being asked to leave.
