Computers & printing
The Library’s Computer Labs are open to all public library cardholders at no cost. Our computers provide access to the internet, the Library’s catalog, subscription databases, and the Microsoft Office Suite, including Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and more. Reservations are not required, but Westmont cardholders may reserve a computer up to 3 days in advance by calling Adult Services at 630 869 6155.
In addition to our first floor lab, dedicated computers for patrons under 18 (and their accompanying adults) are available in Youth & Teen Services on the second floor.
Laptops are available to borrow from the Main Desk for 1-day, in-Library use.
If you do not have a public library card, you can obtain a free, 1-day guest pass to use our computers by visiting the Main Desk, Adult Desk, or Youth & Teen Desk.
