About Library Computers
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. Guests must show picture ID with name and address in order to receive a guest pass.
Free computer tutoring
The Library offers individual computer tutoring! Patrons of all abilities are invited to schedule an appointment for either a half-hour or one-hour session with our knowledgeable computer tutors, who will work with you at your own pace in a relaxed environment. Sessions are available Tuesday mornings, Wednesday and Friday afternoons. Call us at 732-842-0690 x111 or visit our reference desk to sign up.
A printer is available for the public computers in the reference area -- you must pay the reference librarian beforehand in order to print copies. Each black and white page costs $0.15. 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. The library now offers you the ability to print to the library printer from your own devise, laptop, tablet or cell phone. Click on the wireless printing icon on the front page to register and use this service. Print prices are the same as shown above.
A scanner is available free of charge. Documents, slides, and/or photos can be scanned and uploaded to the computer and then attached to an outgoing email or saved in the cloud or to an external device. See the reference librarian if you have questions.
