The library currently maintains 30 computers for public access. 10 of these are located in the children's and young adult areas and provide educational games, reference files and word processing capabilities. The remaining twenty computers are located in the adult area of the library and are capable of internet access as well as word processing functions. Computer use is on a first come, first serve basis - each person is allowed two 2-hour sessions per day.

Residents of Warren County are required to have a library card in order to access the computers. If you are unable to get a card, or simply visiting the area, Visitor's Passes may be obtained at the Reference Desk provided you show picture ID. Juveniles with library cards must have parental consent to use the computers.

Each computer has detailed instructions posted beside it for printing. Once you follow all of the steps, proceed to the Print Release Station (located behind the Adult Reference Desk) with your library card and your money.
