Frequently Asked Questions
How can I use the library's computers?
If you have a regular Clayton County library card in good standing, you may use the library's public computers for up to 2 hours per day in 20 or 60-minute sessions.
If you do not have a Clayton County library card, you may ask for a "Guest Pass" which is a temporary library card number that will allow you to make a 20-minute computer reservation.
Making Your Reservation and Signing In
- Locate the Reservation Station (if you do not see it, ask a staff person).
- Click the "Next Available Computer" button.
- Scan your library card's barcode. If you are using a Guest Pass, you may need to type in the number (with no spaces).
- Take the printout/receipt and look at it to see which computer number it has assigned to you and what time it will be available for you.
- When it is time for your reservation, go to the computer that is assigned to you and enter your library card number (with no spaces).
- After you are logged in, a bar will appear at the top of your screen indicating how much time you have left in your session. Be sure to save your work (preferably to a flash drive) before you reach your time limit, as the computer will log you off at that time.
If you are unable to make a reservation, please ask a staff person for assistance.
- You may only make one reservation at a time.
- You must use your own library card (or a guest pass) to make your reservations. Using another person's library card is against library policy.
- Each library branch has a separate set of computers for use by library users under 18.
- Library users under 18 must have a parent or legal guardian's permission to access the Internet.
