Computers
The library offers free access to the internet,and the Microsoft Office Suite (v. 2010) which includes Microsoft Word, Excel, Access and Powerpoint on our 9 public access computers.  The library has Computer Use and Behavior policies that must be followed. 
 
Each computer has a DVD drive, media card slot, USB and audio ports.  You may use your device (camera, phone, media card) with our computers, but patron assumes all risk when doing so.  Patrons may bring headphones or purchase them at the library.  Sound must be kept at a level that does not disturb staff or patrons of the library.
 
The library has a computerized "waiting list" that can be used by patrons to reserve a computer when they are all occupied.  Each session is 30 minutes, with a maximum of 2 sessions per day.  Additional time may be allowed based upon availability at the discretion of the library staff. 
 
Printing to a black and white laser printer is available when using the library's computers, or also with your own laptop after installing our printer. Printing charges are 15 cents for each printed page.

Ancestry.com Laptops 
We now offer free access to the Library Edition of Ancestry.com at the library.  You may use our computers, your own laptop, or you may borrow one of our two laptops that were purchased for use with Ancestry.com. 
 
We know that genealogy research can be time consuming and therefore we want to provide a longer loan period than the typical 30 minute loan of our public access computers.    
 
For more information about how to borrow one of these laptops read our Laptop Lending Policy or visit or call the library at 646-8181.
