The Library has 24 computers in our Reference Area for use by the public. Library cardholders in good standing may choose any available computer, click on Available on the PCReservation screen and log in using your Library card number. Logging on to a computer requires agreeing to the Library’s Computer and Internet Use Policy. One-day Guest Passes are issued at the Reference Desk for visitors and patrons without Library cards.
Both patrons with library cards and Guest Pass users may have two sessions on the public computers per day. Each session is for one hour and may be extended for an additional 30 minutes, if computers are available. You must be logged on to the computers with your own library cards or a staff-issued Guest Pass.
In addition, there are three public computers in the Rowell Bosse North Carolina Room for genealogical and local history research.

These computers are for use only by children ages 12 and under. Kids ages 8 and under must be accompanied by a parent while using the computers.
