The Library provides public computers in order to support the education and information needs of the community. Computer use is free, but it does require a library card in good standing.
Computer sessions are 60-minutes in length. If you do not have a library card you may request a 15-minute guest pass at the Circulation Desk with a valid photo ID.
Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult while using computers. In compliance with the Children’s Internet Protection Act, we filter all Internet access computers. We have both regular PC’s and Google Chrome Boxes. All regular PCs have Microsoft Office software and free, high-speed Internet. All Google Chrome Boxes run on Google Chrome and use Google docs and have free, high-speed Internet.
Wireless service is avaliable at the Library. The library is not responsible for equipment brought into the building and staff cannot supply technical support.
Computers turn off automatically 15 minutes before the library closes and print jobs will cancel 15 minutes before the library closes. For the library’s full computer use and Internet access policy click here.
