Computers and Technology
Public computers are available for use in both the adult and youth services departments. Patrons who use library-owned computers and other equipment are required to comply with the Library's Computer Use Policy.
Adult Computer Lab
Computers in the adult computer lab are available by signup or reservation from the time the library opens until 15 minutes prior to closing. If you have a library card registered in our system, you can use your card to log in; if you do not have a card, ask at the front desk for a guest pass. Each login session lasts up to a maximum of 120 minutes. At the end of a session, if there are no other patrons waiting to use the computers, the system may grant additional time up to a maximum of 240 total minutes per person per day. Session time may be adjusted at the discretion of the library staff.
To protect our hardware and maintain the security of our network, users may not download or save files to the computer's hard drive. If you would like to download or save documents, you will need to bring a flash drive. Flash drives are also available for sale at the front desk. Please see our Fines and Fees page for more information.
Please use headphones while listening to audio on any of the adult computers. Patrons can provide their own headphones or purchase a pair of earbuds from the front desk. Please see our Fines and Fees page for more information.
The children's department has several computers with Internet access. These computers are reserved for use by children and their caregivers; adults may not use the children's department computers unless given special permission by the library director or designee. These computers are available on a first come, first served basis. In addition to computers with Internet access, the children's department offers Launchpads for checkout and in-house use. These tablets are preloaded with a variety of educational games geared toward preschool and early elementary-age children.
