Public Computer Labs

The Newport News Public Library System provides public computers at each of its four branches - Grissom, Main Street, Pearl Bailey, and South Morrison. These computers have the following software installed on each machine:

  • Microsoft Office 2010, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Access
  • Windows 7
  • Typing Program

Printers are also available at all libraries. Black and white printing is .15 per page and color printing is .50 per page.

In order to use a public computer at one of our branches, you need to have a Newport News library card in good standing, establish a PIN/password number via the Library Payment Center, and agree to abide by the Acceptable Use Policy for Internet Access. There is one computer at each branch that can be reserved up to one week in advance. Reservation can be made by phone or in person.

**If you are under the age of 18, a parent/legal guardian will need to sign a form giving you permission to use the computer. Parents/legal guardians can also designate if the child can have filtered or unfiltered Internet access on this form.

Visitor cards are available for out-of-state visitors. Cards are only good for the day and cost $2.00.

Please see the Computer Lab Documentation area in the left column for details regarding our Acceptable Internet Use Policy. Also, if you have need of assistance for a particular device, be sure to fill out our Technology Release Waiver.
