Using a public computer
Who may use a computer?
All of our valued patrons are welcome to use a public computer while visiting the library, no reservation needed.
How long can I use a computer?
There is no set time limit but library staff may ask you to offer the computer to another patron, if needed. The computer will not turn off until the library is closed.
Can I listen to something?
Yes! We’re happy to loan you a pair of headphones at the Information Desk or you may use your own wired earbuds.

Printing and saving

You can save documents on the computer, but they are deleted when the computer is restarted. We recommend saving files to a USB flash drive or emailing them to yourself.
