To help ensure fair access to public computers, the Library uses time and print management software from CybraryN. Anyone may use the Internet/Word Processing computers for one hour each day. In addition, the Express stations allow one 15-minute session each day. There are 12 Internet/Word Processing computers upstairs in the lab, and 4 Internet/Word Processing computers downstairs in the Young Adult area. Patrons will log in using their library bar code number. Guests (those who do not live in Gallatin County) may request a visitor's pass at the Computer Help Desk upstairs by presenting a photo ID.
Printing is available from any of these computers. The first 5 pages are free; additional pages are 10 cents each for black and white, $1.00 for color. Patrons will need to add money to their account by visiting the Computer Help Desk before printing more than 5 pages.
