All county libraries now require West Virginia residents to present their library cards before using the computers and wireless Internet services as well as sign an Internet agreement, according to Caroline Gaddis, county library director.

Out-of-state patrons will have to present identification with a photo.

County libraries accept the green and tan Mountain Library Network cards, no matter where the card was originally issued, Gaddis explained.

Red and white cards are no longer valid.

To obtain a library card, any state resident may fill out the application, present a photo ID, or two IDs without a photo, with at least one of the IDs carrying a current address.

Children under 18 years of age must have a parent or legal guardian sign their application and the library’s Internet agreement.

Patrons are not permitted to install software on the library computers nor change the settings, according to the policy.

Additionally, computer sessions are limited to 30 minutes and once per day. Those sessions may be longer if no is waiting to use the computer.
