Public Computers and Printing
The DC Public Library (DCPL) provides computers to patrons on a walk-in, first-come first-served basis.
Each patron must use his/her own library card to reserve a computer. Use of another person’s card number is not allowed.
Each patron is allowed up to a total of 140 minutes per day throughout the DCPL system. Adults are allowed two 70-minute sessions (unless using a 15-minute express station), and children are allowed four 35-minute sessions. If there is no one waiting, session lengths are automatically extended.
For more information, visit our Computer Use Guidelines.
Printouts are provided at the following rates:
- 15 cents for black and white
- 35 cents for color
