Computer Access at The Main Library Technology Center
and The Dennis G. Fedor Computer Center at Madison Branch

For your safety and convenience, the Lakewood Public Library uses PC Reservation from Envisionware for all computer reservations. To reserve time, you’ll need a Lakewood Library card in good standing and your PIN. If you don’t know your PIN, bring a photo ID and we'll look it up for you. Parents with proper ID can request PINs for their children. Everyone can make up to three appointments a day which allows for a minimum of one-and-a-half hours of access. We no longer take reservations over the phone. Computer time is non-transferable—once you end your session, it is over. Using a computer under another person's name is not permitted.
See the classes page to learn about extended hours for students and job-seekers.
The Library's public-access computers (51 at Main Library; 6 at Madison Branch) are equipped with DVD-ROM drives, USB ports and headphone jacks. (You must provide your own headphones). USB floppy drives are available by request at the desk.
Black and white printing is provided at no-cost, but is limited to 20 pages a day. The Technology Center does not have color printers. Patron-provided paper and envelopes may be used with staff assistance.
