Computer Use Policy

The Augusta County Library provides computers and printers for public use as a service to its patrons.

Public-use computers are available during regular hours of operation. Patrons may use a computer for up to four-hours per day unless others are waiting. Patrons will be asked to register at each use for statistical reporting.

Patrons are welcome to use their own USB flash drives for downloads. Patrons may temporarily download or save document files to the desktop for uploading purposes but are not allowed to save or download files onto the hard drives. Only library-owned software may be used on public stations.

Printing and headphones are available for a modest fee. Wireless printing is available at most locations.

WiFi is offered at all locations.

A patron’s use of the computers may be restricted at the discretion of Library staff. Unauthorized and illegal use of the library’s computers, including tampering with the system’s operation, integrity, or security, may result in the loss of privileges and/or barring from the library.

Library staff will assist patrons with computer use if time permits. Library staff will provide advice and assistance but not support or repair.
