We are happy to offer computer reservations again at our four branches, beginning Tuesday, Feb. 16.

Please be aware, however, that due to COVID-19, current computer use will look very different from pre-COVID computer use.

Here are our new computer-use requirements and guidelines. Please read them all.

  • To reserve a computer, you must have a library card. We will not provide guest passes at this time. If you do not have a card, you may apply for a regular card in one of our buildings.
  • Call your preferred branch to make a reservation:
    • Coventry (216) 321-3400
    • Lee Road (216) 932-3600
    • Noble (216) 291-5665
    • University Heights (216) 321-4700
  • You may have one computer session per day. Sessions last for 45 minutes. Once your session is over, you must leave the computer area.
  • Reservations may be made for today, tomorrow, or any day up to two weeks in the future.
  • You must wear a mask to enter the building, with both your nose and mouth covered. It must remain on your face while you are using the computer.
  • Due to the need for social distancing, staff will have very limited ability to assist you with the computers.
  • You may bring ONE personal item with you into the computer area, such as a bag, purse, backpack, briefcase, etc.
  • You cannot bring another person with you for your computer session.
  • You cannot eat or drink while using the computer.
  • Please arrive 5-10 minutes ahead of your session. Signs and staff will direct you to your computer when it is time for your session to begin.
  • You will get five dollars-worth of free printing daily (50 B&W or 10 color). You will not be able to add extra funds to your account.
  • Copying, scanning, and printing from a USB will be available on our copiers.

If you cannot meet these requirements, please contact us and we will try to find a way to serve you.
