Frequently Asked Questions

Use the library's free Internet

Here are the basics: during quarantine closure, you can use wi-fi from any library parking lot. 

When Libraries Reopen

When libraries are open, you can use wi-fi inside or get a free turn on a library computer. To save work done on a library computer, or print files from your own computer, 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 45 minutes, and the computer will offer you more time, up to another 15 minutes, if not many computers are in use. Most Branch Libraries have at least one computer on which you can get an hour-long turn. 

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.
