Two desktop computers, two laptop computers, and two Chromebooks are available for patrons to use. There is a 30 minute time-limit on the desktop computer if there are other patrons waiting to use them. If there are no patrons waiting, you may continue your computer session indefinitely. There is a two-hour time limit on the laptop computers and the Chromebooks, assuming that they are being used for homework, job searches, and/or other legitimate business. If the laptops and/or Chromebooks are being used for games, the 30 minute time-limit applies. The laptops and Chromebooks may not be removed from the library. The library does have wireless access and a full suite of Microsoft products. Patrons are welcome to bring in their own wireless devices to connect to the library’s wireless internet connection. All patrons must sign in at the circulation desk to use the computers, even if the computers are not occupied at the time.
Computer time can be scheduled during library hours. If you know you will need a computer, you are welcome to reserve one several hours or days in advance. Please call or email the library and we can reserve a time slot for you.

Children of any age may use the internet with parent/guardian permission, so long as they understand the rules and expectations, and are able to log on and perform tasks as long as they do not require constant assistance by library staff.
