Technology @ the Library

Public Computers

Public computers are available in the adult, teen, and children areas. PCs and Macs are both available. All computers have access to library catalogs, high speed access to the Internet, online research databases, and Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Publisher). Documents should be saved to flash drives or discs. Network printers are available for printouts at $.15 cents per page for black & white, $.50 per page for color.
