Computers & Wi-Fi

Computers are located in the Adult Computer Lab (ages 15+), Teen Area (ages 11-14 and resident only), and Youth Area (10 and under). The library PCs are currently running Windows 7 with Microsoft Office 2010 and internet access.

To use a computer, walk up to any available station and type in your library card number. For patron privacy, all documents or files saved to the computers are erased after each session. Frequently saving your work to a USB flash drive is highly recommended.

Black & white and color printers are available with 8.5″x11″ paper. See the print, copy, scan, & fax page for more details.
