Youth ages 9 and older who wish to play games on the public computers are required to use Chromebooks issued by the Children’s Librarian. They must present their Library card to access a laptop–no exceptions.
Public computer use specifically for gaming by minors is limited to a maximum of one and a half hours (90 minutes). However, there is a limit of 30 minutes per session when other minors are waiting to use the laptops.
Youth needing a computer to do homework may use a desktop computer. However, they must get approval and sign in with the Circulation Librarian before accessing a desktop computer.
Parents with kids under the age of 7 may request to checkout one of the educational and entertaining Playaway tablets from the Children’s Librarian.
