Use of Public Computer Rooms and study rooms

To use a study room or computer room, patrons must check out a key at the Circulation Desk. One person will be assigned the room key upon submission of his/her library card or picture ID. When finished, the patron must close the door and return the key to the Circulation Desk. Keys must remain in the Library. 

The keyholder is responsible for repair or replacement of damaged library equipment, materials, or property in the assigned room. The Library is not responsible for any damage to patron-owned materials used on Library equipment. The Library is not responsible for any loss or theft of patron property.

Some study rooms include a whiteboard. Prior to returning the room key for a study room with a whiteboard, patrons must erase the whiteboard. Only whiteboard markers are allowed. These are available at no cost from the Circulation Desk when checking out a room key. Patrons who use improper marking materials must pay the Library for any damage caused.

Patrons must vacate study and computer rooms and return the key to the Circulation Desk at least 15 minutes prior to closing. Library staff may ask patrons to vacate a study or computer room after two (2) hours of use to allow other patrons to use the room. 

No more than two (2) people may use computer rooms or study rooms, except the designated four (4)-person study room may contain no more than four (4) people. Rooms are available on a first-come, first-served basis. No formal instruction is provided on the use of the equipment or software. Patrons using the study or computer rooms must use them in a quiet manner.
