FAQs 

How many computers are available for use? 

There are two (2) computers available for use for up to 20 minutes.  

 

What happens if all the computers are in use?  

If you come to use a computer and they are all in use, a library staff member will take your information to let you know when one becomes available. You can wait outside the library, or you may leave a phone number and they will give you a call. We ask that you remain on the library property while you wait. 

 

I need longer than 20 minutes on the computer. Can I request a longer session? 

To reach the greatest number of people per day, available computers will automatically time out after 20 minutes. Extensions can be considered by library staff on a case by case basis as related to demand for service at the time of the request. We cannot guarantee anyone a longer session.    

 

Can I send my print job from home and pick it up at the library?  

Yes. The library’s printer is able to accommodate mobile printing sent from any location for quick pick up. Click here for more information on how to send your document(s). If you send a mobile print before arriving to the library, please tell library staff upon arrival you would like to pick up an existing mobile print job, and provide the email address or release code associated with the job. If you need assistance, please call the library at (401) 294-3306.
