Public Computers

The Library is a great place to access the Internet.  Each library has approximately 10-14 computers available for public use.  All you need is your City of Commerce Public Library Card and your personalized PIN number.  If you do not have a PIN number please ask at the front desk to remind you or to create a new one but please be sure to have your library card and ID available when you make the request.  Please also read our Computer Use Policy to become familiar with our computer policy.  If you are planning on bringing your own laptop or mobile device to our library please visit Wireless Internet for more information on accessing the wireless.  For more information on printing at the library visit Printing.
