Enlightening and Inspiring Generations with Generations of Ideas

When I was a young boy, my local library was a place of sanctuary and wonder.  … Often, after collecting a dozen or more titles, I would curl up on the floor at the end of the darkest aisle and spend the day devouring my finds.  There, surrounded by the towering stacks, I found the gateway to the entire human world.  May your journeys here be as wondrous.

Children's Computers

Beyond the two public electronic card catalog computers upstairs, your Library offers public access to 12 more computer terminals. The 8 computers located upstairs are for adults and for children aged 12 years and up. The 4 computers located in Youth Services are reserved for children 11 years and under.

Permission:  All children are required to have a parent/guardian signed permission slip on file at the Library in order to use the computers. Children 11 years and under, using the computers in Youth Services must be supervised by a parent/guardian present at the computer.

Children may use the computers in half hour increments, for a total of three hours in one day, as long as there is no other patron waiting to use the computer. For complete computer guidelines, please see our computer and Internet usage policies.
