Computers, Technology & Wifi

Computers

Computers are located in both the Adult Department and Children’s Department.  All offer internet access and Microsoft Office.  In order to use these computers, you must log on with a valid library card number or a Guest Pass.  There is an adaptive use computer for the visually impaired in the Adult Department.

Guest Pass

If you do not qualify for a Library card, or if you carry a MiLibraryCard (which provides access to print materials only), you may use a guest pass to access the public computers. Two types of guest passes are available:

  • Visitor Express Pass: Free (Good for 15 minutes only)
  • Guest Pass:  $2 (Good for up to two hours on the day purchased, time permitting.)

You may purchase a 90-day E-Pass for $25. This provides you with public computer use only, good for 90 days from the date of purchase.

Or you may purchase a Non-Resident Library Card for $125.  Purchase of a Non-Resident Library card provides library access equivalent to that of a Redford resident, including public computer use. This card may be used by all members of one household.

Fax confirmations

Users can choose to receive a text confirmation that the fax has successfully been sent.

If you prefer to talk to a person, they can call the phone number listed on the fax machine (800-468-2748) to talk to a Fax24 staff member.

Users can also go to the FaxScan website to check the status of their fax, resubmit to multiple fax numbers or send a fax directly from the computer.

Photocopiers

The library offers self-serve copiers for your convenience. The photocopiers are located in the copy alcove near the Adult Reference Desk. Black and white copies are 15¢ per page and color copies are 50¢ per page. You may also scan documents and save them to a flash drive or email a digital copy on the copiers free of charge.

Wireless Internet

Free WiFi is accessible throughout the library. You may print wirelessly from your smartphone, laptop or tablet to one of our Print-Release Stations. If you are in a hurry, request a free visitor express pass for a 15-minute session at any computer.
