The Orange Public Library provides access to the Internet as an informational and educational resource.
All Internet stations are filtered using a third party software product. The Library has made a good faith effort to protect users from pornographic material. However, no filter can completely block all such material on the Internet. In addition, such filters may block legitimate information as well. Parents and guardians of minors are required to consent in writing to their children's use of unfiltered Internet access.
The Orange Public Library Internet Use Policy is posted and is available upon request.
Using a Computer in the Library
An Orange Public Library Card number is required to access the computers. Cards are free and available at the Circulation Desk.
Use an available computer or place yourself on an electronic waiting list if all computers are in use.
Computer usage is limited to 90 minutes per day, per person.
Please do not shut off the computers or otherwise try to interfere with its operations. If you are having technical difficulties, please ask for assistance.
The reference and technology staff are always happy to provide help. We can provide assistance with technical problems and basic search strategies. However, patrons at the desk and on the phone will have priority.
Printing is paid for by adding money to your library card account. Black and white printing is 15 cents per page, and color printing is 60 cents per page.
You may save word processing documents to a floppy disk or USB thumb drive. If you need a disk, you may purchase one at the Information Desk for $1.00.
Instructions regarding how to print from your computer or download to your floppy disk are available at the Information Desk.
