The computers at the library do "time out" once the preset time limit is reached. (Different computers have different limits.) You need to enter a code which is connected to your library card or a user pass in order to log on.

Game rooms are for places like the Heights rec center or the Boys and Girls Clubs. A library needs a modicum of quiet to remain viable for other users. This is mission creep at its worst.
