Computer Access

A PLDL library card barcode plus a PIN is required to gain entry onto the public computers. Guest passes are available at the Front Desk. If you forgot your PIN, please see library staff.

There are 6 computers available for adult use, 1 for young adults (ages 10-17), and 2 for children. Two of the adult computers include keyboards with larger keys, for beginning browsers.

WiFi Access

WiFi is freely available throughout the building. To connect, open your WiFi settings and choose “PLDLpatronaccess.” There is no username or password required at this time. If you are attempting to connect and are having trouble, please contact one of our staff members.

Wireless Printing

PLDL’s printer is available for printing from devices such as phones, tablets, and laptops. Users can connect their device to the library’s wireless internet, PLDLpatronaccess, find their document, and select/add the printer “KYOCERA TASKalpha.” Cost is $.10 per B/W page and $.30 per color page to be paid at the Front Desk.

Chromebook Checkouts

PLDL offers Chromebooks for checkout, which cardholders can take home for up to 14 days. Cardholders must be in good standing to checkout a Chromebook. The Chromebook comes with a carrying case and charger. 

Library users without a library card, including youth at least 12 y.o., may checkout a Chromebook for use in the library. The devices can be used for homework, job searches, research or just browsing the web.

A Chromebook is a personal computer that runs Google Chrome as its operating system. Chromebooks have minimal software installed on them, and are designed to be used for any web-based application where data is stored online. This makes Chromebooks quick to boot up and perfect for many online tasks. 

Limited Library Assistance

Computer users are asked to carefully read provided directions and manuals. Library assistance will generally be limited to helping new users get started and assisting with printer problems. Staff do not have complete knowledge of all the programs and apps on devices.
