Laptops At Your Library: A New Service
Do you need more privacy for your computer tasks than is available in our multi-station lab? Have to go online while talking to your bank or health insurance company to resolve billing issues? Need to have a private discussion with a lawyer, employment agency, benefits provider, or the social security office while looking at your online records?

If so, then our new laptops are just for you! We now have two laptops that may be used throughout the building. Take them into a quiet study room for the most privacy, or to a comfy chair by the fireplace.

The laptops can't be taken from the building and are restricted to library card holders in good standing, ages 18 and over. There is no fee to use the laptops, but users must leave a current driverís license or state/federal ID card at the front desk while they have the laptop out. The full laptop use policy and circulation procedure is available at the libraryís front desk.
