Computer Access Card

About the Card

A computer access card entitles cardholders to use the public computers at any Irving Public Library location. Each customer may have up to two sessions a day; sessions can be up to 90 minutes in length. Check out the Computer and Internet Policy (PDF) for more information. NOTE: All Irving libraries offer free public Wi-Fi and access to wireless printing.

Card Restrictions

Users must have a card and know their PIN to sign onto a library computer. Staff cannot supply the card number or enter a card number for an account holder. PINs can be reset if forgotten. Computer Access Cards do not include checkout privileges or remote use of electronic resources, including online databases, streaming video and downloadable media.


  • Non-residents may either pay $5 for one month’s access or $20 for a year’s access to library computers.
  • The first Computer Use Only Card is free for residents.

Renewing a Computer Access Card

An expired Computer Use Only card can be renewed by visiting the library and presenting a valid photo ID and a separate current proof of address ID for verification. Renewals can also be done over our online chat service. Replacements must be obtained at a library location. Non-residents and those who cannot provide a current address ID will need to pay the applicable fee to renew the card. Fees will be assessed to the customer's library card account to be paid online
