Computers and Printing
MPL recognizes that computers and the Internet address the research, educational, and recreational needs of the public. The Library offers a public computer lab with print capability a copy machine, and a fax machine; a Children’s computer lab, a Teen computer lab, and Wi-Fi throughout all branches. All users with a library card from any Hidalgo County Library are allowed up to 3 hours of Internet use per day. Users who do not have the documents required to register for a full-access library card may register for an e-access only library card with a valid photo identification (U.S., Canada, Mexico). At the discretion of library staff, a 1-hour extension may be granted for educational or employment purposes. MPL staff offer limited assistance to computer users. Users in need of extended assistance are encouraged to enroll in a basic computer class at any of our locations.
