Public Computing

About Public Computing at the Library

At UAPL, we’ve got you covered with high-speed Wi-Fi access and Windows computers pre-loaded with a variety of popular applications. To get started, all you need is an Upper Arlington Public Library card or a valid card from a CLC partner library.

If you find that all of our computers are currently in use, don’t worry! Our friendly staff members will be happy to assist you with making a reservation. Reservations are granted on a first-come, first-served basis.

We encourage our patrons to use USB flash drives for personal data storage and to keep their personal information safe. Please note that all files saved to the computer will be removed when your session concludes.

We want everyone to have a positive experience while using our services, which is why we ask that all internet use adheres to UAPL’s Internet Policy.


Printing, copying, scanning, and faxing is available at all locations. For more information visit our Print & Copy Services page.
