Using a Computer
Operation of a public access computer requires a current Mooresville Public Library card. Out-of-state guests may obtain a guest pass for 60 minutes of computer use from the circulation desk.
Black & white prints are $.10 a page and color prints are $.20 a page. Print jobs sent to the printer may be retrieved until the library closes.
Wi-Fi Internet access is available for use with your wireless-enabled device or laptop. Printing is not available over the wireless network.
The Internet allows users to connect to vast networks of information, resources and ideas outside the library. It is an unregulated medium. As such, it offers access to a wealth of material that is personally, professionally and culturally enriching to individuals of all ages. It also enables access to some material that may be inaccurate, offensive, disturbing and/or illegal. Users must accept personal responsibility for determining the suitability and appropriateness of information obtained through the Internet. The library staff has no control over materials on the Internet and cannot be held responsible for Internet content. With the exception of certain sexually and explicitly graphic websites, neither Mooresville Public Library nor the vendor of the computer management system attempts to control adults' access to online content or to protect adult users from online content they may find offensive.
