Use a Computer

The library has public computers with Internet access. This describes what we have and how to use them.

We have 6 desk top computers and 2 laptop computers available to the public.  To use the computer you must sign in at the circulation desk (to sign out a laptop to use within the library, you must leave your driver's license at the desk.)  You may use the computer for 30 minutes - if no one is waiting, you may stay on longer.  Our computers have Microsoft Office installed, while you may not save to the library computers, you are welcome to bring your flash drive to save your work.  The computers do not have the sound enabled, if you will need sound, please bring your own earphones.

If you have fines over $5.00 and have outstanding materials, you will not be able to use the computers until the items are returned and/or fine is paid.

On Wednesday mornings from 10:00am-11:00am a staff person is in lab to help you with computer problems and to answer your questions.  If you would like individual lessons on the computer please arrange a time by speaking to the librarian at the circulation desk.
