Rio Community Library Services and Fees

Library Cards and Borrowing Materials

No charge is required for borrowing library materials or for applying for a new library card.  A lost library card may be replaced for $1.  When a patron’s fines exceed $5, s/he will not be allowed to check out materials or use a computer until the amount due is less than $5.  No fines are assessed on Sundays, holidays or any other day the library is closed. Items returned in the outside drop box will be checked in as of the day prior to the date they were found in the box.  There are also no fines for children's materials of any kind.

The Rio Community Library has six computer workstations that have internet access.  Internet connections are provided through Firefox and Chrome.  All computers have Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010 loaded, which includes Word, Excel, Access, PowerPoint, and several other programs.

Sound is disabled on all workstations.  To listen to online content, each patron must bring a set of headphones that can plug into the workstation.  The Library also sells headphones for $1.

No content may be saved on the workstations once the patron is finished working.  Patrons may bring a flash drive to download documents.

A scanner is available for making digital copies.  There is no charge for the use of the scanner.  Check with a staff member if you would like to use the scanner.

Need help?  Library Staff are always willing to help you with using the computers and printers.
