MCPL patrons with library cards in good standing must log-on to the computer using their MCPL barcode. MCPL patrons with library cards not in good standing must check-in at the Customer Service Desk. Out-of-District patrons must check-in at the Customer Service Desk, show identification and will be assigned to out-at-district computers only. All patrons must be in good standing to use a computer.

The time period for computer use is 1 hour. The time limit may be extended if computers are available and no one is waiting. At time of peak usage, the number of sessions and time may be limited based on the needs of the Library.

Signed Policy forms should be brought to the Customer Service desk for processing.

No more than 2 persons may use a computer at the same time.
