Computer Access

Public Access Computers

Hackney Library has 2 available public access computers. These computers are only available if they are not in use by Barton students at the time of the request for use--Barton students' use takes first priority;

  • Patrons must present a valid picture ID and register on a list at the circulation desk with their name, address, time, and date logged on the computer. (This registration information is kept confidential, although it is subject to the United States Patriot Act.)
  • Friends are allowed 2 hours of computer use per day. Additional time is allowed pending the approval of the on-duty reference librarian
  • During final exams, there is no public access to the library's computers.
  • Users under the age of 18 searching Internet sites other than through the library web page are asked to be in the company of their parent or guardian.
