Computer & Internet Use

The Hazelton District Public Library offers to all patrons and visitors 30 minutes of free public Internet access per day. The library is equipped with three public workstations. In addition, we have a project computer reserved for those doing research or working on personal projects such as online coursework, updating a résumé, etc. This station can be booked for sessions of up to two hours. Black and white printing is available at a rate of $0.25/page.

We also provide free wireless Internet access (Wi-Fi) during business hours.

By making use of library equipment to access the Internet, you agree to the following rules:

  • Sign in with your library card’s barcode number and password at the workstation you wish to use for Internet purposes.
  • Consider those around you when choosing what to view on library computers. Your computer screen will be visible to everyone passing by and we therefore ask that you refrain from viewing potentially offensive material in the library.
  • Our public terminals are not secure, therefore it is not advisable to give out personal identifying information or credit card numbers.
  • To share the resource with as many people as possible, your time will be limited. Please respect your daily time limits to avoid suspension of your access privileges.
  • Report to library staff any error messages or other difficulties right away.

You, not the HDPL, are responsible for your activities on the Internet. Users who abuse their computer access privileges or engage in any illegal or unethical activity on library equipment may have their access suspended or revoked.

Internet Use by Children

If you have concerns about your child accessing inappropriate material online, filtered Internet access is available on all the library’s public workstations. To use the filtered web browser, children simply need to click on the “Kids” icon when they log in. We remind patrons of any age, the library does not take responsibility for what children access online.
