Computers and Printing
The Library provides nearly 150 public-access computers with Internet access over a fiber-optic connection. Both Branches are joined by a fiber bridge. In addition, free Wi-Fi access is available at each Branch and Wi-Fi printing is now available at both branches. For more information and instructions click here.
Library Computer use and printing requires a library card that is active in our system or a guest pass and agreeing to the Library’s Acceptable Use Policy. Use of the Wi-Fi network by laptops does not require a library card, but does require agreeing to the Library’s Acceptable Use Policy.
All computer users need an active library card. Those who live, work or attend school in Farmington/Farmington Hills may use a Farmington Community Library card. Those who live in the service area of The Library Network (such as Livonia, Novi, Southfield, W. Bloomfield, etc.) and MichiCard holders may use their own library card. (The Circulation Desk can enter your card. Photo ID is required.) If you do not have a card, Information Desk staff will issue a computer guest pass to individuals with proper ID. Note: Guest passes will not work for checking out materials!
Black and white (10¢ per page and color (50¢ per page) is available on the public computers. Printing may be retrieved from the print release stations, using your library card or guest pass. The vend units accept $1 and $5 bills.
Ear Buds ($1.00), USB flash drives ($10.00), 3.5 inch floppy disks (50¢), CD-RW disks ($1.50) are available for purchase at the Circulation Desk.
