Public Use Computers

computer-use

The Lester Public Library offers free public internet access for both patrons and visitors.

To use these computers you need a library card in good standing (not expired, less than $10 of fines) and a PIN number.  For all library purposes your PIN number is the last four digits of your phone number, unless you’ve specifically requested otherwise.  Any card issued from Manitowoc, Two Rivers, Brillion, Chilton, Kiel or New Holstein will work with our computer system.

Visitors: Please stop by the Help Desk to request a day pass for computer usage.

Public access computers are also equipped with Microsoft Office 2010 software and are networked to a black and white laser printer. Printing costs $.10 per page. Users are limited to a maximum of 2 hours/day.

Computers may be reserved or are available on a first come, first served basis. Call the Help desk at (920)793-7114 to reserve your time.
