How do I get on a computer?
You may log onto any unused computer without making a reservation. If all computers are busy, you may ask the staff to reserve the next available computer or make a reservation for later that day.
Do I need a library card to use the computer?
A qualified yes (see below). Residents of Stanly County must have a library card in order to use the computers. Those with a library card in good standing (e.g., less than $5.00 owed) may log on one of our public computers with the library card barcode number and PIN.
I have a library card but I don’t have it with me. Can you look up my number?
No. As with other library services, you must have your library card in hand.
I don’t have a library card. Can I still use a computer?
Again, a qualified yes:
- Stanly County residents must have an SCPL card in good standing to use the computers; if you live in Stanly County but do not have a library card, one can be issued to you within minutes at the Circulation Desk.
- Guest Passes are provided for out-of-county visitors to our library who can present valid identification that includes a photo and current address (e.g., driver’s license or state ID card). Other Guest Passes may be issued at the discretion of the librarian on duty.
More information about the library’s computers is listed in the links in the right-hand menu.
