      Computer Use Rules (February 23, 2004)

      1. Users may reserve one-hour sessions in person at the Library counter or by telephone up to 7 days in advance.  If others are waiting to use the work stations, users arriving more than 10 minute late will forfeit their reservations.  Those without a reservation will be assigned a workstation on a first come, first served basis.

      2. Reserved sessions begin on the hour and may not exceed one hour.  If no one is waiting to use a workstation, a session may be extended until another user is waiting.

      3. Printing is free for adults and for school children (preschool-Grade 12) engaged in school work.  No child may print unless the printing is for school.  Printing more than 10 pages per day requires the approval of the Library Director or his nominee.

       

      4. Only one person may use a workstation at the same time.  A parent or guardian may, however, use a workstation with his or her minor child.

       

      5. Library staff may assist users briefly but cannot provide extensive instruction.
