Enlightening and Inspiring Generations with Generations of Ideas

I can’t help but imagine how many people’s lives have been changed by 100 years of reading your books.  …  I remember how it felt as a child walking into that quiet room and realizing that I could go just about anywhere I wanted.  That room was an escape from the world, and, at the same time a window onto any part of the universe that I chose to explore.  …  I still feel a sense of possibility and experience a feeling that time has stopped when I walk into a library.  I usually don’t have a particular book in mind, but like to wander around and see what I can discover.

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.
