In the library’s KishHealth System computer lab we have 26 high-speed internet access computers available to the public. DeKalb Public Library cardholders in good standing are allotted three hours a day to use the computers, with extensions given as space allows. Guest passes are issued to non-cardholders for 15 minutes a day. In addition to the internet access computers, the lab also has four public computers with Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint that can be used at any time, by any patron, with no library membership required. These computers do not have access to the internet, but can be used to print or edit documents. Technical assistance is available during all library hours.
Adults are expected to use the internet computers in the KishHealth System Computer Lab, unless they are accompanied by a child, in which case they are allowed to use the internet computers in the Youth Services Department. Children can use the internet computers with consent from a parent or guardian, and the computers will automatically be filtered when they sign on. Consent must be given verbally to a staff member.
Printing, copying, and faxing
The library also has a public printer, copier, and fax machine. It is 10 cents/page for black/white printing or copying, 50 cents/page for color, and $1.00/page to fax. Documents can also be sent to a smartphone or USB drive for 5 cents/copy. The public fax machine can be used to send documents, but not to receive them.
The library also provides FREE high-speed Wi-Fi throughout the building. With plenty of seating there are many spaces for patrons to bring their own devices and connect to the internet. Library staff is available to help you connect to Wi-Fi.
Computers and Wi-Fi capabilities shut down 15 minutes prior to closing.
