Yuba County Library in Marysville is looking at charging people to use computers for Internet access after the county library advisory commission asked for a review.
“We’re looking at ways to generate income,” Sandeep Sidhu, library administrative supervisor, said Thursday.
Mallen said the library has 30 computers that can be accessed free for two hours a day. The commission wanted to know about options that include charging people after two hours, he said.
Such computer use is a popular service at the library and a fee for access is only under review, Mallen added. “There’s no immediate plan to do that,” he said.
Charissa McClain, a library commission member, said the panel is interested in how other libraries handle computer access.
“We really did not discuss whether any of us favor the fee,” McClain said. “What we want to know is what do other libraries do.”
