Computers & WI-FI

What do I need to access the computers?

If you have a Webster County Library card and your account is in good standing, then your library card is all you need to access our public computers. 

When you sign in for the first time you will create a Personal Identification Number (PIN) and then be asked to confirm it by retyping it.

About your PIN:

  • The PIN is your pass word to keep others from using your card number to access our computers.
  • The PIN can only be one word.
  • The PIN must be at least 4 characters long.
  • If you forget your PIN we cannot give it to you. We can reset your PIN, and you can create another PIN.

Computer time is limited to 1 hour per day.

What if i don't have a card?

If you are visiting, we can provide you with a temporary computer pass, a photo ID is required.

The library computers are available to the public and all patrons should use caution when transmitting personal information. Patrons should always sign out or log off of all websites.
