WORD PROCESSING POLICY

(Albemarle Regional Library)

 

The Albemarle Regional Library has made word processing capabilities available to the public. The following guidelines apply:

 

  1. Patrons must sign up to use word processing at the circulation desk on a first come, first serve basis.
  2. As computers are used for providing access to Internet as well, time limits must be instituted: 1hour intervals. Patrons may sign up for additional 30-minute slots if no one is waiting. Total time for any one individual shall not exceed two hours per day.
  3. Patrons are expected to have prior computer skills in regards to word processing, as the library staffs are not available for training in this area.
  4. Patrons may not save their works to the computer hard drive. As computer viruses can be passed through computer disks, patrons but must purchase a 3.5 disk from the circulation desk at library cost if they wish to save their work.
  5. Printing is available at each location for the cost of .10 cents per page for black and white copies and .25 cents per page for color copies, or such different amount as the Regional Library Board may direct.
