Computer and Internet Usage

The library has wireless Internet and public computers with Internet access.

The library has seven computers for patron use, four are located in the front computer center and three are in the back area. There is wireless internet that can be accessed from anywhere within the library. We also have an AWE computer in our children's area that is equipped with games for young children.

Each computer has internet access and word processing programs; most have printing capabilities. Several have games intended for children while others have publishing programs such as Microsoft Publisher, Front Page and Powerpoint.

We will be glad to help you with the computers or specific programs but you should have basic computer knowledge before starting.

Please ask a librarian about the availability of computers. Computer time is scheduled in 45-minute time slots. Extended time may be granted if no one is waiting.

There is a maximum of 1 person at the same computer at one time; sharing computers is not allowed.

Young children should be supervised by an adult or qualified user.

Parental permission is not required to use the computers; however permission is required before using the internet. See our internet use policy for more information.

Use of floppy discs, CDs and jump drives from outside of the library may be limited at the librarian’s discretion.

The librarian may terminate computer use for excessive noise, damage to equipment or if there are hardware or software problems. Patrons who unplug headphones or other cords from computers will be asked to get off the computers.

Please no food or drink near the computers!
