The library has twelve public computers - eight for adults on the main level and four for children in the Children's Department on the lower level. These computers provide high speed access to the Internet and are equipped with Microsoft Office applications such as Word and Excel.
Computer use is free to all but users must log in with their library card and PIN. Computer use passes are available to visitors - please see the reference librarian.
A printer is available for the public computers - you must pay the reference librarian beforehand in order to print copies. Each black and white page costs $0.15 - a minimum of a dollar per transaction is requested.
Thanks to the generous support of the The Foundation for the Red Bank Public Library
, we are happy to announce that color printing is available for our public computers as well! Each color page costs $0.40 - a minimum of a dollar per transaction is requested.
There are also four laptops that are available to Red Bank Library card holders who are working on job hunting tasks or homework. Please see the reference librarian - you will need to leave your library card and photo ID with the librarian while the laptop is in use. At this time there is no printing available directly from the laptops but documents can be saved to a flashdrive or emailed to yourself so that you may print from one of the desktop computers.
A scanner is available free of charge. Documents and/or photos can be scanned and uploaded to the computer and then attached to an outgoing email. See the reference librarian if you have questions.
Wifi is free and available to anyone who has a laptop computer. A password is not required - the network ID is rbpl on the main level or rbpl2 on the lower level. Wireless printing is not available at this time.
A color copier is available for public use - $.15 per copy for black & white - $.40 per copy for color copies.
