Public Computers and WiFiEach White Oak Library District branch has a number of public computers available for use. Patrons can gain access to a computer by presenting a library card in good standing from any Illinois library. Color printing is available for $.40 per page and Black&White printing is $.25 per page.
Most public computers come equipped with screen reader technology, specifically NVDA (Non-Visual Desktop Access). Also the Lockport Branch has one computer with JAWS (Job Access With Speech).
Patrons visiting from places outside of Illinois can get a guest pass for 30 minutes of computer time per day by presenting a driver’s license or state ID. Signing of our Internet and Electronic Resources Policy is also required.
