Computer & Internet Access
Computer workstations with access to the Internet are available for free public use with a valid library card. Cardholders ages 13 and over may access these computers with a daily time limit of 120 minutes and a maximum session limit of 60 minutes. Same day reservations can be made at the Library during open hours. View the Library's Internet Guidelines (PDF).
Children under the age of 13 may use these computer workstations with the express written permission of a parent or legal guardian. A parent or legal guardian must be present when submitting the signed Internet Access Permission Slip (PDF) to library staff.
Library staff does not monitor children's use of the Internet and the Library cannot enforce family rules. Children are less likely to encounter objectionable material and will get more out of the online experience when they have adult supervision. The Library encourages parents and legal guardians to become involved in their children's use of the Internet, including the appropriate use of safety and security techniques. As an alternative, the Library offers children’s workstations. Please see below for details.
Wi-Fi Access & Printing
The Library provides free wireless access to the Internet. Wireless users may print using the Library's Wi-Fi Printing Service.
The computer workstations stations located in the children's reading area offer access to the Internet that is more stringently filtered than the computer workstations in the main library. This means they are equipped with software designed to prevent minors from accessing sites that may contain material that is inappropriate for children (e.g., obscene or sexually explicit material). Parents and legal guardians should be aware, however, that no filtering system is perfect, and that children who use these stations could come into contact with objectionable material.
Computer use is free, with a 30 minute time limit.
Additional filtered Internet computers are located at:
Library Study Center

Paso Robles, CA 93446
Printing is available in black and white and color from Library computers and via Wi-Fi service. (Link to Wi-Fi printing page). The cost of printing is 20¢ per single sided document.
