Using Library Computers


Computers at both library locations are equipped with a variety of software and online educational applications for different ages and tasks. 

Our computers in the Youth Services areas are appropriate for customers 17 and younger.  These computers have:

  • Filtered internet access
  • Age appropriate educational software
  • Microsoft Office programs
  • Printing capabilities
  • Quick Stations with filtered internet access (no library card required)
  • Headphones/earbuds allowed

Our computers in the Internet Computer Center (ICC) are available for customers 18 and older. They are equipped with:

  • Unfiltered internet access
  • Job Search/Legal Aid
  • Resume software
  • Microsoft Office programs
  • Printing capabilities
  • Headphones/earbuds allowed

NOTE: If an unfiltered Internet access is needed for a customer younger than 18, a Parental Internet Access Consent form needs to be on file with the library. This form must be filled out and signed by a Parent/Legal Guardian in the presence of library staff.
