Public Computer Use Procedure

Library Card Required

A valid library card in good standing from any Connecticut public library is required in order to use the internet or word processing computers. There is no advance sign up for the internet computers. They are available on a first come first serve basis. Everyone is limited to 1 hour a day on the internet stations.


There may be a maximum of two people at a workstation at a time, but if this becomes disruptive, staff may limit use to one per workstation.


Users may print out information using a centralized printer. Black and white prints cost $0.15 and color prints cost $.50.

Basic Computer Skills

Users must have basic computer skills, including the ability to use Windows and a mouse. When finished using the Internet, please end your session and close out.

Available Computers

There are eleven computers in the Adult and Young Adult areas that may be used by patrons of all ages.

Children Computers

The computers in the children’s department are for the use of children in Grades 8 and under. During the school year, parents whose children are attending a preschool program may use the Children’s internet. At any other time, children’s internet use by teens or adults is at the discretion of library staff.
