Patron PCs and Laptops
The Library provides 6 computer workstations for Patron and Visitor internet use. All systems provide access to publishing and word document software. Computers are available for 1 hour time slots, and may be booked in advance. Please check with the front desk before sitting at a station, as that computer may be reserved. Please be advised that there is no filtration software on these systems, and a parent/legal guardian must sign a permission form before children under the age of 13 will be permitted to use the computer.
As well, a Macbook and 6 Chromebooks are available for adult Patrons and Visitors to use in-library. The Chromebooks can also be borrowed for meetings and clubs hosted within the library building.
Privacy is ensured on our Public Access computers through the use of Deep Freeze Software. Each machine resets to its original state upon reboot, and all passwords and documents are cleared. Documents and images cannot be saved to these devices. A personal USB stick is required to save items.
To facilitate the goal of Equitable Internet Access, the Library offers free Wi-Fi. Accessible from your personal laptop, tablet or other connected device, this service is available after hours to accommodate business and tourist needs.
