Internet turns at the Main Library are half an hour. Most Branch Libraries have at least one computer on which you can get a longer turn.
At the Main Library in Eureka, use your Humboldt County Library Card to sign directly on to internet computers, or use the reservation station to reserve a turn. If you are a visitor, ask for a Guest Pass at the Circulation Desk. If you are filling out a government form or an application form for school or employment, ask the reference librarian if a special computer is available for you.
If you don't need the internet, there's usually a word processing computer free. These workstations include resume software, word processing, and spreadsheets.

(1) You can use control-plus. This is really easy, and works on most web pages! Hold down the control button (or, on a Mac, the command button or apple button) and press the "+" key. It's also the "=" key.
Each time you press the plus key you zoom in and make the library portion of the page bigger. Hitting control-minus (use the dash key, it's right next to the plus key) will make the text smaller again.
