Use a Computer

The Fayette Community Library has computers for public access and for use of the library staff.

Who may use the computers:

  • Persons wishing to use the computer must first check with the library staff on duty before using the computer.  
  • Persons wishing to use the computer must be a cardholder at the Fayette Community Library and no fines or fees over $1.00.  Computer usage will be revoked until obligations are met.
  • As a convenience to out of town visitors the library will allow them to use the computers but must relinquish if a cardholder needs to use it after the 30 minutes is up.
  • First time users will receive a brief orientation by the library staff on the proper use of the computers and on the types of software available.

  • Our computer center will be open during regular library hours, beginning 15 minutes after opening and closing 15 minutes before closing each day.
  • Patrons may reserve time slots of 30 minutes by stopping in the library or phoning.  Patrons may reserve time only for their personal use.

  • It is the user's responsibility to report anything wrong with the computers immediately.
  • The library's software is protected by copyright and may not be copied.
