Internet access for children

Parents or guardians can choose from two internet options for children: the default setting of unrestricted internet access or no internet access. To change your child's internet access please contact us. It's the responsibility of parents or guardians to monitor and guide their children's internet activity at the Library.

Members with no internet access do not have access to the Library's wireless network, and they will be unable to connect to the internet on library devices that depend on the Library’s wireless network for connectivity.

Print for free.

Your Library card gives you $5 of printing per month. You can access printing inside all library locations, except Rocky Ridge, during opening hours.
