Patrons can use our self sign-up program called mConsole to access these computers. No Library Card Needed to use a computer


Each computer user has 60 minutes to use the computer. More time may be granted if there are not others waiting for a computer. 


1 adult public access computer is located in the children's room on the first floor of the library. This allows parents to work while their kids use the children's computers.

Services Available

The library has a Xerox 7120 copy machine available for public use. 


This machine can copy, scan, print, and fax. 


The machine is self-service or you can ask a librarian for assistance. 


If you copy or print incorrectly you are still responsible for the cost of the print.


The library charges by the ink, not by the paper. If you bring your own paper you must still pay the full price of the printing costs.
