There is free public access to the Internet at 9 computers during all the hours the library is open.
We also have 2 card catalog computers on the First Level and 1 upstairs in the Junior Room. There are 2 Jr. Internet computers in the Junior Room for children 12 and younger. Out-of-town visitors or guests are welcome!
Time is limited to
one consecutive hour per day
, to ensure fair accessibility. Users may request a second hour - for a maximum of two consecutive hours - if no one is waiting. Please read our Internet Use Policy as well as our Internet Safety Resources page.
We do our best to keep these computers up and running well. However, computer hardware does break, and computer software does get corrupted especially in a public environment. Our staff can solve basic computer-related problems and will try to help within the time constraints imposed by their reference responsibilities but they cannot teach you how to use the computers or troubleshoot applications.
This tutorial is designed to help people who have never used a computer before and concentrates on using the mouse and a few other basic skills.
