Patron Access Computers in the Computer Lab
The Computer Lab has 16 computers available for public access computing. In addition to lab closures for classes or special programming, occasionally internet service is disrupted in order to perform maintenance or upgrades.You can sign up for advance email notifications of service downtime.
Library computers must comply with the Children’s Internet Protection Act and so there is internet filtering software on the computers. Adults who provide proof of age over 17 can have filtering disabled, but nevertheless everyone must abide by our internal guidelines for appropriate use of the internet.
