Computers are available for use by children, teens and adults. You may use library computer workstations or log on to library or personal laptops to access the Internet or use word processing and presentation software. You may download files to a removable storage device like a flash drive or disk. You must provide your own headphones.

The Library uses a computer reservation system for computer signup. Using a valid Newburgh library card or Newburgh Internet Pass, adults may sign up for two sessions per day on the desktop computers, either for 20 minutes and/or 60 minutes.

Using a valid library card, children and teens are allowed to use the computers one session per day. Adults with clean Newburgh library cards can use a laptop in the library for two active 1-hour sessions per day. To borrow a laptop, you must present your library card and photo ID. Laptops are checked out for 3 hours to allow time to pick up, set up, print and return the laptop. The daily fine begins to accrue 1 hour after the time due. A laptop is considered to be lost at the end of the business day on which it was checked out. Fines or lost materials will prevent you from using a library computer.
