How Can I Access the Public Computers and Internet?
Library members in good standing (less than $10 in fines) may log onto the computers in the public computer lab using their library card number and personal identification number (PIN). Visitors with photo ID may request a visitor’s pass to access the Internet/computers.
If you have your own wireless-enabled laptop or device, you may connect to the library’s WiFi network for free. The password provides greater privacy protection to users than an open WiFi network.
The WiFi network name is: Hudson Area Library.
The password is: halibrary
How Much Time Can I Spend on a Library Computer?
Library members and visitors are allowed an hour of Internet/computer access per day on the public computers. If you need more time, ask a staff member in the office if your time can be refreshed. If you are using the Internet/computer to search for a job, you may use the Job Search Computer which has no daily time limit.
How Do I Save a File?
The computers are automatically wiped clean of documents and downloads after logging off. You will need to save your files to a flash drive or upload them to an Internet site before your session ends if you wish to access your files again.
How do I Print?
Printing is available from the public computers at 25¢ per page. If you wish to print you must add funds to your card/pass at the main circulation desk before printing.
What If I Need Help?
Ask a library staff member if you need help with the computers. We are limited in the amount of time we can spend helping individuals one-on-one. Computer classes are offered by the library to help you to improve your skills.
