Computers & Technology

There are computers (Macs and PCs) available on the first floor and second floor, each offering a wide range of software, from Microsoft Office to statistics packages.  Friends of the Library with library access privileges may use any of these computers by requesting a guest pass at the Circulation Desk or Reference Desk when they visit.

Guest Wi-Fi, scanners, printers, microform readers, and three workstations with a variety of media playback and recording equipment are also available in the library.
