Computers and Wireless Internet

A limited number of computers will be available during the library's open hours for up to one hour per day. You can make a computer reservation online, in person, or by phone. Patrons must have a valid library card 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 does sell headphones and USB drives for a fee.

How many computers do you have available for the public to use?
Due to COVID-19, current availability is limited to six computers (two on the first floor, four on the second floor) in order to maintain appropriate distancing (for patrons and staff). We also have one Stoughton Area School District computer for student use on the second floor.

Do you have time limits for computer use?
Yes. The time limit for computer use is 60 minutes per person per day. 

Do you offer help or training with specific software?
Our staff can often provide brief assistance with common programs or basic Internet functions. However, during this phase of reopening, assistance and troubleshooting is limited to what staff can provide from six feet away.

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.

Wireless Internet
While seating is limited, feel free to use your device at one of the six existing computer stations (two on the first floor, four on the second floor). We are slowly bringing back seating, and we also have a study room available on the second floor--please ask for assistance.

Printing and scanning
You can print from our computers, and our printers do 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.

Library Computers & COVID-19 Safety
We ask that all visitors over the age of 5 wear a mask in the building, even if you are fully vaccinated. Our busy library sees hundreds of visitors per day, and we continue to believe that masks are the best way to make sure our space is safe for everyone at this stage in the pandemic.
