Computers with Internet access and Microsoft Office software are located in the adult, teen, and youth areas. A valid Saline District Library card with a PIN is needed to use the Internet computers, or a guest pass may be requested.
Documents printed from Internet computers may be picked up at the print station located near the computers in the adult area. A black and white printer ($.10 per page) and a color printer ($.50 per page) are available.
Flash drives are available for sale at the circulation desk.
Free wireless access is available in most areas of the library. The wireless password is librarywifi, and a library card is not required.
To comply with state law, Saline District Library has chosen to filter all terminals with monitors that might be visible to minors. For that reason, wireless access is also filtered. We have made every effort to enable access to various requested utilities, but there may still be unavailable sites.
FAX & PHOTOCOPY SERVICES
Fax services are available. The fee for outgoing faxes and incoming faxes is $1 per page.
Photocopy machines are located in two areas: in the alcoves on either side of the circulation desk. Color copies cost $.50 each and black and white copies are $.10. Paper sizes include 8.5 x 11, 8.5 x 14, and 11 x 17.
Scanning is available, free of charge, at the color copier located near the circulation desk.

MEETING & STUDY ROOMS
The Brecon Room is a meeting room with a capacity of 60 people that can be divided into two rooms with a capacity of 30 on each side.
It is the intention of the Library to open its meeting rooms for certain limited educational, cultural, civic and intellectual functions conducted by community groups, governmental groups, and service organizations. Profit-making organizations may use the rooms for business meetings or staff training sessions only. The sale of merchandise is not allowed, with the exception of sales in conjunction with author visits or library programming. The meeting rooms must be reserved by a person who is 18 years or older. Youth groups (those groups with attendees under the age of 18) must have adult supervision. Meeting rooms are not available for private social occasions. All attendees must abide by Policy 502: Code of Behavior.
All meetings held in the Library meeting rooms must be open to the public free of charge. The rooms will be reserved on a first come, first served basis. Library programs and events shall have the first priority for meeting rooms and any use that interferes with those programs or events shall be prohibited. The Library reserves the right to limit use of the meeting rooms to certain days and times as necessary to accommodate Library staffing availability.

Three small study rooms are available on a first-come, first-served basis for nonprofit groups. The minimum age requirement is high school and older. Up to 4 people may use a room, and the time limit is 2 hours during periods of high demand. Beverages in lidded containers are permitted in the study rooms; food is not.
