For Kids

In the children’s area, our six public computers are equipped with Magic Desktop, which has age-appropriate limitations and features, such as games, art programs, and a content-limited internet browser. Children may use a computer for up to one hour by signing in with their library card or a guest pass.

For Teens

Teens may check out our circulating Chromebooks for use anywhere within the library.

Public Computers

Patrons with a valid library card may use computers in the library for one hour each day.  Manlius Library also offers guest passes.
Please read our computer use policy.

Anytime you are asked for your barcode you need to enter all 14 digits without any spaces. The computer login also requires a four-digit PIN number. Stop at the circulation desk and present identification if you need to create a PIN. Library cards are not transferable; each patron must use their own library card to access the computer.

Our public access computers have Internet Explorer and Firefox for browsing and Microsoft Office 2010 Word, Excel and PowerPoint.

USB flash drives can be used with public computers. CD/DVD drives and SD card drives are available, but burning CDs is not supported.

Speakers are not provided on public computers. Patrons may bring their own headphones or borrow a pair of ours.

The library has a CAC (common access card) Reader available for use inside the library. Patrons with military or government ID may use this card to access secure websites from our public computers.

Circulating Laptops

Manlius and Fayetteville patrons with a valid library card may check out one of our circulating laptops or Chromebooks.  The library has 10 Chromebooks and 2 Windows PCs for circulation in-house.

Our laptops are for patrons aged 18 and up and require a valid government-issued ID to check out. The laptops have a full suite of office programs.

Chromebooks are available to patrons aged 12 and up and do not require a government-issued ID for check out. These devices are web-ready but can not have additional apps installed. Patrons may sign into their own Google accounts to use these Chromebooks.

Public Internet

Manlius Library has free, unlimited wireless internet (wifi) available with no password required.

Circulating WiFi Kits

Manlius Library provides patrons with circulating Chromebooks and hotspots. If you don’t have the internet at home, this is the opportunity to get wireless independence.

Patrons can check out a Chromebook laptop and accompanying 4G wireless internet hotspot for three weeks. These hotspots allow up to 10 different devices to connect to the Internet for free.

These kits are loaned to patrons aged 18 and older with library cards in good standing. Patrons must sign a loan agreement prior to checkout.

Call us at (315) 682-6400 for more information or help in being added to the wait list.

There are two types of hotspots available to borrow: Verizon and T-Mobile. The Verizon Hot Spot can be checked out by any Onondaga County Public Library system cardholder. To borrow a T-Mobile Hot Spot, you must be a Manlius cardholder.
