Frequently Asked Questions

Use the library's free Internet

Free Internet at Your Library

Even when the library is closed, you can use wi-fi from any library parking lot. 

For most Humboldt County Public Libraries, wi-fi hours are 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM.

When Libraries are Open

When libraries are open, you can use wi-fi inside or outside, or get a free turn on a library computer. To save work done on a library computer, or print files from your own computer, either bring a portable drive (flash drive, thumb drive, memory stick) or save to your email or online account.

Prints can be made via library computers, and cost 10 cents a page. 50 cents for color prints. 

Internet sessions on public computers at the Main Library are 30 minutes, and the computer will offer you more time, up to another 15 minutes, if not many computers are in use. For quick access to a computer, please bring your library card if you have one. Most Branch Libraries have at least one computer for internet use.

At the Main Library in Eureka, use your Humboldt County Library Card to get a turn on a public computer. If you are a visitor, ask for a Guest Pass at the Computer Access Desk. If you are filling out a government form or an application form for school or employment, ask if a special computer is available for you. 

There is no wi-fi password needed at the Main Library in Eureka, but some branch libraries may require you to ask staff for the password. All use of the Library’s internet must be appropriate for a public place, and is subject to the Humboldt County Library Internet Policy.  On the left menu of the library home page, under Library Resources, look for Public Computers & Internet -- there you’ll find more details.
