Computers

Computers are available for public use in the Library for 3 hour sessions. Time can be extended if no one is waiting. Library cards are not required. Computers have Microsoft Office software (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Publisher) as well as Firefox, Microsoft Edge, and Chrome for Internet access.

Children age 8 and under must be supervised by a parent or adult over 18 while using the library’s computers.  Children 9 and older may use the library’s computers if a parent or guardian has consented to the child’s computer use on the child’s Library Card Application. Parents may restrict their children under the age of 16 from using any computer stations by not consenting to computer use on the children’s Library Card Application. Children under the age of 18 are restricted to the computers in the Youth Services Department.

Scanning

We have a scanner attached to a public use computer. There is no charge for use. Scans are not saved on the computer after the computer session is over, so they must be sent to an email address or saved to a USB flash drive. Our copier also has a document scanner that can scan multiple pages into one document to be saved on a USB flash drive.

Printing

All public library computers have both black & white and color printing options.

Size Printing costs
8.5″x11″ $.15 each side b&w, $.30 color

Patrons are allowed to bring their own paper at the same costs as above. We do not allow specialty papers such as sticker paper or heat transfer paper.
