Policies

All patrons using the Internet must adhere to UAPL's Internet Policy.

An Upper Arlington Public Library card is required to access our patron computers. PC Management software is installed on our patron PCs to allow for future PC reservations (same day only) and give waiting patrons quicker access to computers. Patrons are limited to five 60 minute sessions and can be used continuously as long as there are no waiting reservations.

Patrons are encouraged to use USB flash drives for personal data storage.
