COVID-19 Social Distancing Changes

At the moment, our Lower Level lounge, vending machines, and program rooms are not open to the public. We do anticipate reopening the Lower Level in the future but do not yet have a firm date. We thank you for your patience and understanding and look forward to offering you a safe, comfortable, and healthy place to relax again.

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 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.

Public Computers and Printing

COVID-19 Update: Public computers are available on the upper level in the Adult Wing for one-hour time slots. Keyboards are cleaned with UVC light every hour. Printing, including color printing, is available for 15 cents per page. For further information, see our Internet Access page.

Free Wi-Fi

COVID-19 Update: Access our Wi-Fi in our parking garage close to the building. At this time we are encouraging everyone to limit their time within the library to under one hour.

Copying & Faxing

COVID-19 Update: Currently, our copier is not available for public use, but staff at the Reference & Information Desk can assist you in making copies which are available for 15 cents per page. Staff can also assist you with faxing which is available for 50 cents a page.

Study Rooms

COVID-19 Update:  Study rooms are not available at this time.


Checking out a hotspot is easy! Present a valid library card at the Reference and Information Desk and get connectivity for three weeks! All startup instructions are included and technical assistance is available, but getting connected is so easy, we don’t think you’ll need our help.

Please be sure to return the hotspot by the due date to be courteous to others waiting to checkout and to avoid overdue fines of $1 per day. After three days overdue, the hotspot will no longer function. Hotspots must be returned to the Reference and Information Desk.

Enjoy the connectivity and expand your horizons! For assistance, call 616.850.6914 or email
