Computer Center Procedures

SAM: On June 11th, 2005, the Maywood Public Library District acquired a new automated attendant system for all of the adult public computers. SAM (Smart Access Manager) allows Maywood patrons to type in their own library card barcodes along with a self-made PIN number to access the Internet and other software.  Printed documents are paid for directly from the user's library card, which serves as a debit card.  The patron's library card must be in good standing (no fines or late fees) for SAM to permit the user to access a computer.

Printing: The cost of printing from the regular printer is $.10 per page. It is highly advised that you pick up your copies as soon as they print out to insure that your copies are not accidentally removed. The Maywood Public Library District bears no responsibility if this occurs.

Fax Machine: Faxes can be made in the Computer Center for the cost of $1.00 per page.

Youth Services Computers: Another 5 computers are located in the Youth Services Department for grade school children. Children are required to show their library cards before getting onto a computer.

Computer Center Procedures

Sessions are limited to one hour. Additional time may be granted if no one is waiting.

OPACPatrons must use their own Maywood Public Library card.

If you do not have your library card or forget your pin #, you must show a current photo I.D. or proof of residency to access your library account information.

Printing is $.10 per page. Patrons are responsible for all copies. Please ask for assistance before printing.
