Yankton Community Library

The Yankton Community Library is pleased to announce the launch of a new computer scheduling system.  Beginning during the first week in September, all patrons will be required to sign up on a scheduling computer, using their patron barcode and password.  Patrons can choose the computer they want to use and reserve that computer for a future time or, if the computer is immediately available, use it right away.  All users will be allowed a total of ninety minutes of computer use per day.

People who live within the city limits of Yankton qualify for free library cards.  If they don’t currently hold a card, they will need to bring proper identification and proof of their current address to obtain a library card.  Those families who have household cards will be issued guest passes if more than one person in the household wants to use a computer.  All cardholders must be in good standing with the library, meaning they have less than $5.00 in fines and/or have no overdue or lost materials.  If any of these conditions exist on their cards, they will be unable to use the computers.

Anyone who is not a regular library user and lives outside the Yankton city limits can get a guest pass to use a computer.  All guest passes have the ninety minute per day limit.

This new access management program should reduce staff time needed for routine computer use and allow patrons easier access to computer resources.  Library staff will be available to answer questions and help patrons as we transition to this new system.
