The Broken Bow Public Library provides the following:

Public Access Computers

There are five computers with Internet access available to the public at no charge.  All patrons must sign in at the circulation desk before using these computers.  The computers are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. All computer users must sign in and sign out at the circulation desk and mark on the sign-in sheet the purpose of their computer use. An individual who has a library card and who wants to use a public access computer must have an account in good standing.

Any computer user under the age of 18, must have a parent or legal guardian sign a Computer Card/Internet Access Card that will be kept on file at the circulation desk.  The card also provides the parents/legal guardian an opportunity to note any restrictions they want placed on their child’s use of the Internet.

A black and white printer is connected to the public access computers.  Printing cost is 10 cents a page.

The library’s policy pertaining to the use of public access computers is available by the sign-in sheet.
