Children's Computers 

There are 4 computers with internet access in our Children's Area at the Main Library. They are available for use up to 1 hour per day by children under the age of 14.

These computers use filtering software which restricts access to sites which may not be age appropriate for children. 

The Children's Area also has 2 touch screen AWE computers preloaded with educational games for children ages 6-12, and 2 Early Literacy Stations for children aged 2-6 years (one station is bilingual).  

Local History & Genealogy Computers at the Main Library

We have 2 computers dedicated for local history or genealogy research. Ask at the Information Desk on the main floor for one of us to log you onto either:

  • a computer which allows you to scan microfilm screenshots and save them to your portable USB drive
  • a computer which provides you with free access to Ancestry.com and other family history websites

Tech Support

If you have a quick troubleshooting question about our computers or software, please ask for help at one of our Information Desks. Staff can also help you access any of our digital library collections of eBooks, audiobooks, music and videos.

We do not offer formal computer instruction or classes, but you may find our Tech Topics and Tech 1 on 1 programs useful. To learn more about either of these programs, take a look at our Programs for Adults, or check our Events Calendar for upcoming dates and special topics.
