Pitkin County Library provides access to twenty two computers. Two "express computers" are limited to twenty minutes. You will also find computers on each floor of the library to search the catalog. The Children’s room provides access to four computers that are well suited to teaching older children how to effectively use the internet and develop other basic computing skills. We also provide access to two computers in the children’s room that are designed for use by younger children.
To sign on to a computer, simply choose a computer that is not in use and sign on using your thirteen digit library card number. If you have forgotten your card please show a photo ID and we will be happy to give you your number. If you are a visitor a temporary pass can be obtained at a Circulation desk on presentation of a photo ID and proceed to sign on. If all of the computers are in use, please use the reservation/print release kiosk to make a reservation for the next available computer.
Use of the computers is limited to four hours a day.
All computers are equipped with the Microsoft Office Suite.
It is possible to print from any of the public access computers. Printing costs 10 cents per page and 25 cents per color page. To print, press PRINT on any of the public computers, and then release the print job from the print release kiosk. If you are printing a document that is attached to an email, please download the original document to maintain the document’s proper formatting. Do not print from web based document viewers.
