How to Use Our Computers & Wifi


Public Computers

The Drummond Public Library has six Internet-capable computers for the public to use. Some libraries require that you have a library card that you use to sign in to use our computers. We do not require this.

Patrons may use our computers on a first come first serve basis; if there is a computer open, you are free to use it. If there are no other people waiting to use a computer, patrons may stay on as long as needed.

Patrons cannot reserve computers, but they can ask to be put on a waiting list if all the computers are taken. If there is a waiting list, time periods may be limited to 30 minutes. Whoever has been on the longest will be asked to free up a computer for use.  

If a patron needs a computer for functions such as classwork, taking tests, or job related activities, preference may be given to them.  


We also offer Wireless Internet. There is no password required and the Drummond Library encourages people to make use of the service at any hour.

Our wireless can be used from within the building during library hours, or from either the parking lot or picnic tables that are behind the building on a patio.

Patrons are welcome to use the power outlets in the building for their computers during library open hours.

If you are having trouble connecting to the wireless Internet, it could be a problem with your personal computer or the wireless hub might need to be reset.

Please see library staff if you are having difficulties.  It usually is very easy to remedy. 


There is a shared printer available for use at 10 cents per page.  


Appropriate behavior will be expected at all times.
Patrons may not use the computer to participate in activities that are intrusive, inappropriate or bothersome to other patrons or library staff. 
A patron may be asked to exit a website if staff deem necessary.
