Computers and Wireless Internet

You can make a computer reservation online, in person, or by phone. Patrons may use their library card or a guest pass to access the public computers. If you are visiting or do not have a library card, ask the staff at the 2nd Floor Information Desk or the 1st Floor Children's Desk for a computer pass. The library does not supply headphones, but we do sell headphones and USB drives for a small charge.

How many computers do you have available for the public to use?
We have four internet computers for adults and teens on the second floor, and two internet computers for children on the first floor. We also have one Stoughton Area School District computer for student use on the second floor. Plus we have laptops you can check out to use inside the library.

Do you have time limits for computer use?
Yes. The time limit for computer use is 120 minutes per person per day. The laptops may be checked out for the whole day, however.

Wireless Internet
Free Wireless internet (WiFi) is available throughout the building and directly outside the library. Connect to the "Library Wireless" network.

Printing, Scanning, and Faxing
You can print from our computers, and our printers offer scanning options. We also now offer wireless printing. Printing and photocopying costs are: 15 cents per page for black & white, and 50 cents per page for color.

We have a Scan-EZ station which can send faxes. Faxing cost is 50 cents per page, but our maximum charge for faxing is $5.00 even if your document is longer than 10 pages. We are unable to receive faxes. We suggest contacting the UPS Store if you need to receive a fax.

The Scan-EZ station also has other features including language translation, creating an audio file from a scanned text document, editing photos, creating PDFs, and more.

Do you offer help or training with specific software?
Our staff can often provide brief assistance with common programs or basic Internet functions. Patrons and staff will wear masks during one-on-one computer assistance.

What are your computer use policies?
By using our equipment and network, patrons agree to our Internet Acceptable Use Policy and Library Materials Use Policy.
