Computer Access Card

UPDATE: In response to the COVID-19 situation, all library buildings were closed to walk-in traffic. At this time, public access to computers is not available. Wireless Internet is still broadcasting from the parking lot of each Irving Library location and Wireless Printing is still available for payment and pick-up at IPL Express points at the South Irving Library, West Irving Library and Valley Ranch Library. We apologize for the inconvenience.

About the Card

A computer access card entitles you to use the public computers at any Irving Public Library location. Each customer may have up to three sessions a day; sessions can be up to an hour 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

You must have a card to sign onto a library computer. 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 $10 for a year’s access to library computers.
  • Replacement cards are $2 each.
  • The first Computer Use Only Card is free for residents.

Renewing a Computer Access Card

You may renew an expired Computer Use Only card by visiting the library and presenting a valid photo ID and a separate current proof of address ID for verification.  Non-residents and those who can not provide an current address ID will need to pay the applicable fee to renew the card.
