Free Personal Computing

Library computers allow you to browse the internet, check email, use social media, prepare documents and files using Microsoft Office products, search for jobs, complete online applications, and much more. If you plan to watch videos, play games, listen to music, or otherwise need to hear sound while on the computer, bring headphones. You cannot download and install software from the internet on library computers. Bring your own USB drive if you plan to create and save files such as a resume or a school paper.

For your security, when you log off a library computer, it will reset and erase all the files you created as well as your internet activity. Library staff in the computer room are available to help you log into the computer and open available software programs. If you need additional help beyond this, we can help you find online tutorials.

Guest passes are only available to adults over age 18 (learn more).


Wireless Printing

In addition to printing through library computers, patrons and guests can print wirelessly from a personal laptop.

Instructions:

  1. Visit the library computer room on the second floor
  2. Connect to the “Library Computer Room” wi-fi
  3. Click the link below to open the print console

After submitting your print job to the console, pick up your printed papers from our staff member in the computer room. Printed pages cost $0.10 each. Black and white printing only.

Level the Playing Field

Public libraries are vital resources in their communities. One way that libraries make a difference is by leveling the playing field for basic technology. Learn more in this video from the Idaho Commission for Libraries:


Computer Room Hours

Unless otherwise noted below, our computer room is open whenever the library is open. The computer system shuts down fifteen minutes before the library closes. Library hours are:

Monday-Thursday, 10:00am-9:00pm
Friday-Saturday, 10:00am-6:00pm
Closed Sunday

Please note: We may close all or part of the computer room at certain times for classes, programs, certification exams, or computer service needs. To find out if the computer room is currently open or has scheduled closures today, call 208-612-8460.


Computer Room Policies

The Idaho Falls Public Library’s public computer room is governed by two library policies. Your use of library computers constitutes your agreement to the terms of both policies:

Library card holders have up to 3:40 hours of computer access daily (in four 55-minute increments). Guests have up to 55 minutes daily. Library staff will not issue guest passes to minors under age 18. Staff do not supervise the online activity of minors with library cards. All guests requesting access to the computer room will be asked to show valid identification. Computer workstations are available on a first-come, first-served basis. The computer room offers single-sided black and white laser printing for $0.10/page, but does not have a scanner or color printer. The library does not have a public fax machine.
