Patrons log in using their library barcode number. Non-library card holders can request a visitor's pass to obtain access as a Guest. To help ensure fair access to public computers and printers, the library uses time and printer management software.  Anyone in good library standing may use the Internet/ computers for four hours each day. Extra time can be granted when requested. For card holding patrons in good standing for 90 days or more, we have Windows laptops, Google Chrombooks and Children's Playaway Launchpads available for checkout.
