Computers & Internet

Internet access is available for free through public use computers and Wi-Fi at all Wichita Public Library locations. All users must comply with the Library's Internet Acceptable Use Policy.

Using Computing & Internet Services

  • Only one computer can be assigned per library card.
  • A child may sign up using the parent or legal guardian's card.
  •  Sessions are 60 minutes at all other locations.
  • There is no daily limit on computer time; however, if someone reserves your computer, you will not be allowed to extend your time and must reserve the next available PC upon the end of your session.
