Computer Access & Printing

Computer Access

Computer lab hours are only available at the Library! at Cole & Ustick, the Library! at Hillcrest, and the Main Library. Computer access is walk-in only, and the hours are the same at those three locations:

  • Monday - Friday from 10 a.m.-6 p.m.
  • Saturday from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

Library cards are encouraged for computer access. If you do not have an active library card, a guest pass will be available.

To limit exposure to others, please keep computer use for essential tasks that cannot be delayed until conditions are safer.

What to Expect
  • Computer use is strictly limited to 45 minutes, once per day.
  • Wifi access is filtered.
  • Face coverings are required and must be worn at all times.
  • Gloves are available upon request.
  • Equipment is cleaned between each user.

Printing is available from any Boise Public Library computer. Library cardholders can print up to 10 pages a day at no cost. Additional pages are 10 cents each.

You can also print from your own device during computer access hours, and at the Main Library, curbside pickup of print jobs is available. Learn more about our mobile printing options here.


How will I enter the building for computer access? 
At each location, there is a designated entrance for computer access. There is signage to indicate which entrance to use as you may have to walk around the side or toward the back of a building.

Can I use a copier or scanner?
Copiers and scanners are available for use during computer access hours.

How long can I use a computer?
Customers can have one session per day, capped at 45 minutes. 

Will protective equipment be provided?
Yes, for those who don't have their own protective equipment, a mask will be provided free of charge. Gloves will be provided upon request.
