Public Computers

Our public computers are available for anyone to use.  You can log in with a library card from any public library in the Bibliomation consortium.  Not sure if your library is in the consortium?  Ask for assistance at the East Wing Reference Desk.  If you don't have a library card, guest passes  are available at the East Wing Reference Desk when you present an ID.




Access the internet with your own laptop, tablet, or phone using our free wifi.  No password required.  Just select SBL-WiFi-hotspot at your device.



Printing & Copying

Black and white printing and copying is available at 15 cents per page.  Color printing is available at 50 cents per page.  Please ask for assistance at the East Wing Reference Desk if you wish to print in color.

In order to print from the computer, you will need to pre-load money onto your library card or guest pass at the Circulation Desk before you print your document.

Photocopy machines are also available at 15 cents per black and white page.
