Public Computer Use Procedures

Residents of Rochester, Rochester Hills, and Oakland Township with valid RHPL cards have priority access to the library’s public computers. Patrons are required to log in with a library card number and PIN/password to use a computer.

  • Most computers are available for four-hour sessions.
  • 15-minute express computers are on the second floor.
  • Large flatbed printers and scanners are also available to RHPL patrons.
  • Non-residents may only use the public computers on the second floor and must ask for a guest pass at the Adult Reference Desk. Non-residents are eligible for a 30-minute session.
  • Those with an expired RHPL card or who owe more than $5 in fines cannot log onto a public computer. Computers in Teen Services are for patrons ages 13 to 18.
  • Additional computers are in the Quiet Study Room and are for RHPL patrons with valid library cards and who are 18 years of age or older.

A temporary library card number will not work on the computers. Visit one of the library’s reference desks for assistance.
