Internet Access at Loutit

COVID-19 Update:

Our copiers, printers, and fax are available again to the public! If you would prefer copies, prints, and faxing to be done through our curbside or locker service, please e-mail loutitquickprint@gmail.com with the documents, along with your name and phone number. We will call you to schedule a time to pick up your print job. As a courtesy, your library card can be charged for the price of the job and may be paid from the comfort of your home through your online library account. Don’t have a library card? We can accept exact change at time of pickup.

Wi-Fi Access

Bring your wireless devices and get free wireless access throughout the library. Look for the network LDL – PUBLIC. Access is not restricted – you do not need a password or library card number to use our Wi-Fi.

Power

Need to plug in? You’ll find outlets at nearly every table and seating area in the library. There are no outlets on our deck — but there is Wi-Fi!

Printing

To print, save your work to a USB drive, or send your files to an email account. You can print your saved files from a computer in the Public Computing Area. Printing is $0.15 cents per page. You are responsible for ALL pages printed.

Limitations and Security

Our Wi-Fi service is not secure. Use it at your own risk. The library is not responsible for the safety of equipment or data files resulting from connection to its wireless network. Review the library’s Internet Policy for details.

Public Computing Area

Located on the upper level near the Reference & Information Desk, the computers in our Public Computing Area provide free access to the Internet, email, MS Office, and online research tools. Computers are available for all ages. Computers specifically reserved for youth and teens are located in the Youth Wing and Teen Room respectively.

Using a Computer

The computers in our Public Computing Area are available by a first come, first serve basis.

A screen will pop up where our Internet Policy is shown, and you will click ‘Accept’ after reading the policy to begin your session.

Time Limits

To help ensure access for everyone, there is a limit one one-hour session per day per person. Sessions may be extended at the discretion of  library staff.

Bringing files and saving work

You may use your own USB drives to transport and save files with our computers. After each session the computer is cleared of all downloads, logins, and new files.
