Public Computers

Each of our branches has public computers with access to the Internet, PINES catalog, databases, and the Microsoft office suite. So if you need to update a resume, work on a project, or want to browse the Internet, you can get it done at the Library! You’ll need a valid PINES Library Card to use public workstations.

For complete details about using public computers, please read the Computer Use Policy.

Printing, Photocopying, and Scanning

We provide access to state-of-the-art printers and copiers at each of our branches. You can also scan documents to email from library copiers. Both color and black and white is available. You cannot use your personal paper (including photo paper, labels, or cardstock) in library printers or copiers.

You will need a Print Card to print in the libraries, which you can get from the Circulation Desk at any branch. There is no charge for the initial print card. Replacement cards cost $2.50.

Printing prices:

  • B/W: $.10 per page
  • Color: $.40 per page

If you need help using equipment, please see a staff member at any branch.

Wireless Internet Access

The library’s wireless network is available at all six branches, is free, and is available during library business hours (it turns off approximately 10 minutes before the library closes).

If you are in one of our branches and your laptop or mobile device does not pick up the signal, please ask one of the library staff to verify that the wireless network is up and running.

To connect to the wireless network, complete the following steps:

  • On your laptop or wireless device, locate the public network, Library_Wireless, and click “connect.”
  • If your device does not automatically detect the public wireless, you may need to configure your adapter settings to use the public network: Library_Wireless.

Library staff members are unable to diagnose connectivity issues or provide technical support on the laptops or mobile devices.
