The Computer Use and Internet Policy of the Hoboken Public Library
Please note beginning on 5/7/18, patrons with library cards using the second floor public computers may add additional time to their sessions in incriminates of one hour, if there is no wait for that computer.  You must click “yes” when asked if you want to add time to your session in the pop message on the computer; the time will not be added automatically.  Patrons continue to only be guaranteed that each of their two possible sessions per day will be an hour*; additional time is only allowed subject to availability.  *The computers shut down automatically 15 minutes before closing so sessions close to closing may be truncated. Also the library is nolonger requiring IDs for computer use; patrons will now use courtesy passes as temporary library card numbers for that day to log into the computer for two sessions and to access their print jobs..
