MTPL has public computers available for patrons and guests. Patrons with a library card in good standing can use their library card number to log into any open computer. Guests must show a photo ID at the Circulation Desk to receive a Guest Pass for the computers. Staff can assist patrons with basic computer questions as availability permits, and computer tutorials are available by appointment. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for tutorial inquires.
Patrons and guests are allowed one session per day, and sessions are limited to two hours. If a patron needs to step away for a short time, the session can be saved or the screen hidden from view. If a computer is left idle, the session will time out and patron work will be lost. Files cannot be saved on the public computers and patrons are responsible for managing and saving their information.
Computers are available daily from opening until 15 minutes before closing. Computer sessions must be finished 15 minutes before the library closes and sessions cannot be extended past that time. Printing services are not available once the computer sessions have ended.
