Attention Library Computer Users: Carry Your Card!

Beginning SOON, you will need to key in your library card number to use a computer at the library.

What if I don’t have a library card?

If you don’t have a card, you may get one at the Lending Services desk; bring an ID such as a driver’s license or piece of mail addressed to your Brunswick or Harpswell address. A parent’s signature is required for patrons under age 18. If you’ve lost your card, replacement cards are available for $1.

Can I use the computers if I’m not eligible for a library card?

Yes. If you’re not eligible for a Curtis Memorial Library card, you may register for a Curtis computer card. You do NOT need to be a resident of Brunswick or Harpswell to get a computer card. A general ID – student card, bank card, etc. is required, or special arrangements may be made for users who don’t have ID.

What if I’m just visiting from out of town?

Guest computer cards will be available at the service desks. There will also be 2 express computer stations that do not require logging on with a card number.

Why is the library changing the computer use procedure?

We are making this change to ensure that computer access is fair for all. A time limit of 2 hours per day will accompany the new procedure.

Other Questions? Library desk staff will be happy to assist you.
