Reserve a Computer Session

As part of the library’s efforts to reintroduce important services during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are offering patrons the chance to reserve a 60 minute computer session. The library has six computers available for patrons to use. Four of these computers do not have chairs and are located in the Main Level Standing area. There are two computers with chairs: one in the Main Level Sitting area and one in the Main Level ADA area. The ADA computer includes special magnification and audio software for visual accommodation. If you need a chair, when reserving a computer online please be sure to select either the Main Level Sitting area or the Main Level ADA area.
