Public Computers

PVLD offers a number of public computers with internet connections, popular software packages, and hardware that can connect to most gadgets and data cards. A software reservation system is used to control busy times and for this reason a PVLD library card number is required to use the public computers. Place a reservation at the reservation kiosk at the library with your library barcode or if one is available simply sit down and sign in.

Printing

Black and white and color printing is available at all PVLD locations. The charge is $0.15 per page for black and white and $0.75 per page for color. The printing machines accept coins or bills.
