Booking a Computer

If no one is using a public computer you may simply log in to it without booking, but it may not be available for an entire hour if another user has already booked it for a set time. When you log in, the computer will tell you how much time you will have.

The best way to ensure you get your full hour on a computer is to make a reservation. To book an adult computer, go to one of the three print/booking stations (where you can also print and pay fines). On the the first floor, it is located near the self-checkout stations. On the second and third floors, you can find them near the printers.

At the print/booking station, you can choose to book the next available computer, or book one for a later time slot. When booking, you will be required to enter your library card number and PIN, or a guest pass number. Guest passes are available at the information desks. Once you have booked a computer, the small printer next to the station will print a slip with your PC number and time slot on it. If you are using a guest pass, make sure to hold on to it; you will need it when you actually log in to the computer or release a print job.

Children must ask staff at the children’s info desk to use the children’s computers.
