Wireless Internet access is available throughout the library. Internet access is also available at five wired workstations. Printing in both black-and-white and color is available.
In order to assure fair accessibility for all, we ask that you abide by these Internet Access Guidelines:
User must have a valid Belleville Public Library card (except for wireless use or one-time guest use).
Patron (or parent/guardian if patron is under 18 years of age) must read and sign the library's Internet Use Agreement.
An adult must accompany children under age 8 when using the library's public access computers (except for online card catalog).
Internet access will be available, subject to periodic maintenance, during the library's regular open hours. Users must sign in at the front desk before using the library’s public access computers (except for online card catalog).
Use of the Internet access computer will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Those using the Internet access computer will agree, as a condition of use, that if another patron is waiting or a library staff member needs to use the computer for library-related tasks, they will make the computer available within 15 minutes of being informed by library staff that another person is waiting.
Patrons may not save files onto the computer’s hard drive. Patrons will use only the software provided for their use and may not load any other software on the computer hard disk drive.
There is a twenty cent charge for each page printed. Patrons will be charged for multiple copies printed.
