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

Reserve Your Own Time

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. See the Class page to learn about extended hours for students and job-seekers.

Using a computer under another person's name is not permitted.
