Public Computers

Due to COVID-19 we have limited the number of computers available. While in Limited Service, we will offer 10 computers in the Information Commons.

You must have a BPL library card or get a guest pass in order to use a computer. Everyone is limited to a maximum of two 30-minute computer sessions per day throughout the entire BPL system.
