Our Children’s Computers feature Internet access, educational games, reference materials, and word processing programs.

Children may log in to the computers for up to three hours a day using their library card or a guest pass.  You can pick up a guest pass at the Children’s Desk.

To access the Internet, children will need a parent’s approval.

A parent may give verbal permission and we can print a guest pass that allows one-time Internet access. You will need to give verbal permission each time that your child uses the Internet.
