Library Changes Rules for Computer Access
Starting Tuesday, Sept. 8, The Seattle Public Library's Library Equal Access Program (LEAP) will implement some changes to its computer lab usage policy. The LEAP lab is at the Central Library, 1000 Fourth Ave., Level 3.
LEAP offers special adaptive equipment, materials in accessible formats and Library services for patrons with special needs who are blind and/or visually impaired, deaf and/or hearing impaired or with other special needs.
Beginning Sept. 8, Library customers who want to use the LEAP lab computers will be required to have Library cards from The Seattle Public Library and will need to present their cards or give the card numbers to staff members when signing up to use the computers. Patrons who don't have their cards with them can have staff members can look up their information. Staff members can also assist patrons in applying for new library cards.
The time limit for computer use will change from two hours to 90 minutes. There has recently been strong demand for LEAP lab computers. Changing the time limit to 90 minutes will allow more people to use the computers each day and will help prevent long waiting periods. This is the same time limit on other computers throughout The Seattle Public Library system.
