  • If you need help, just ask. The librarian will assist you in any way she can.


Share the space

  • Sign in/out each time you use the computer. Time is limited to 30 minutes if others are waiting.

  • Due to the computer room being a confined space we ask that all computer users please refrain from wearing strong cologne/perfume and attend to personal hygiene as to not offend other computer users.

  • All books must be current and all fees paid before library patrons may use computers.


Be considerate of others

  • Be aware and courteous of others who have come to the library for a quiet environment.

  • Disrupting or interfering with safety or normal operation of the library, library staff, or library visitors is not allowed. 

  • Use headphones when listening to audio content and keep volume low so that you do not disturb others. (The library does not supply headphones.)

  • No cell phone calls allowed while in the computer room.


Accompany your children

  • We love kids! 

  • We have educational tablets available for in-library use under adult caregiver supervision.

  • Children under 16 must be under the supervision of a caregiver 18 years or older at all times.
