General Info

Computers and wireless internet are available at all Bryan+College Station Public Library System locations. Some computers are solely for searching our catalog, while others are internet equipped. Check with a librarian to locate the correct type of computer. Computer usage is limited to one hour per day at each location. If no one is waiting, the computer will offer the option of extending by 15 minutes twice. Log on using your library bar code and your PIN number. The front desk can reset PIN numbers. Wireless internet is available all day.

People who live out of the area can get a temporary, one-day pass from the Reference Desk. If you will be using our internet more than once, please ask the front desk for a non-borrower card. If you live locally, please obtain a library card to get on the computers. You will be asked to show identification.

You must use your own library card to access the internet. If someone else uses your card, you can lose your internet access.
