The library provides public-access computers in the computer lab, as well as computers in the children’s department. Computers run Windows 7 and offer Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Microsoft Office 2007, OpenOffice and Internet access. Some computers contain copies of the software used in our classes which patrons may use outside of class time if desired.
Use of the computers requires a valid library card in good standing and acceptance of the library’s Internet use policy. Minors require an additional signed permission form. Visitors may request a guest pass from the customer service desk.
Customers may use the computers for an unlimited time during library hours, unless all computers are in use, at which time a 90-minute limit will be enforced.
Only one person is permitted at a workstation at any one time, except for a parent/guardian/custodial caregiver assisting the user. Students working on projects may request permission to work in pairs.
Files may not be downloaded to the library’s hard drives. Users must have their own external storage if they wish to download files.
Printing costs $0.20 per page for black and white and $0.25 per page for color.
