public computers:
You may connect to the Internet through the Library. Internet users must have a valid Oak Ridge Public Library card and pin number to access the Internet at the library. Those living outside the city limits may purchase a full service library card for $45 a year, which will allow them to check out library materials in addition to accessing the Internet, or buy a guest pass for Internet use only. Guest passes cost $2 and are only valid for the day it was purchased. If you do not live within city limits and your computer use will take 20 minutes or less, the library offers express guest passes free of charge.

During Phase 1 of the Library reopening after the COVID-19 Pandemic, library computers will only be available for up to one hour for guests. Computer access will cost $1 for users without a library card.

Wireless Access:
Bring your laptop and surf the web. Wireless access has been configured for use in the Library. Please see a Reference Staff member for the correct settings to connect.

WI-fi Hotspots:
We are now offering Wi-Fi hotspots for check out! These devices are being provided free of charge thanks, in part, to grant funding. Hotspots are located in our New Nonfiction section. They have a loan period of 1 week. Overdue hotspots will accrue a late fee of $2 a day and will be deactivated.

ORPL, unfortunately, cannot guarantee the Wi-Fi devices will always be free of charge, but we are thankful for the opportunity to provide these hot spots at no cost for as long as possible.
