Public Computer Policy

Public Computer Policy 

The Champaign County Library provides free internet access to the public through traditional sit down computer stations as well as wireless access. 

Because this is a public resource, the rights of others must be respected and therefore: 

 

  • Computers have Internet, Microsoft Word, Excel, Publisher and PowerPoint. 
  • Patrons must sign in at the Service Desk to use public computers. 
  • Public computers are generally available until 10 minutes prior to closing.   
  • Sessions are limited to 45 minutes if others are waiting or 3 hours total per day. 
  • If all public computers are in use, you may join a waiting list at the Service Desk. 
  • Children under 18 must have parental permission to use public computers.  Children under 8 using public computers must have a parent with them.   
  • Printing from public computers: Black & White: 10¢ per page; Color: 25¢ per page. 
  • Copies are available for pick up and payment at the Service Desk.   
  • Do not send, receive or display text or graphics that may be reasonably construed as obscene. 
  • Please remain compliant with all local, state or federal laws.   
  • Please do not alter, reconfigure, or damage public computers or network.  Do not attempt to install software or access any files, passwords, or data belonging to others. 
  • Computer usage is periodically monitored by staff. 
  • Violation of this policy will result in loss of computer privileges.
