THE SMART STORE® has you covered when you need to get online. Libraries used to be only about books and other materials that you could take home with you. Today, however, there is a world of information and knowledge to make you smarter and we have the resources and trained professionals to help you find answers to your questions. 

All Stark County District Library locations provide public access computers. SCDL employs a PC Reservation System that requires computer users to have a library card. All customers will receive 120 minutes of computer access per day. The time will be divided into three sessions, with the first lasting 60 minutes, followed by two 30 minute sessions. If no one is waiting for a computer, customers may use all 120 minutes without taking a break. Computers will shut down 15 minutes prior to closing.

To use an Available Computer: Have your library barcode ready before beginning. Click "Available" and enter a complete Stark County District Library card's barcode. Click OK.
Click Accept on the Use Policy page.
Click OK to Use this Computer. A timer box will appear and remain until it times out or you select End Session.

If all computer stations are in use, you will need to Reserve a Computer: Have your library barcode ready before beginning. Click "Available" and enter a complete Stark County District Library card's barcode. Click OK.

Take your receipt which will identify the time and computer you will use.

When momentarily stepping away from a computer session, use the Hide option found on the timer's options located under the dropdown arrow (you will need to create a password to reopen the session).

Closing or ending the session occurs if the End Session button is selected or if the allotted time has expired. Confirm the conclusion of a session, click OK.
