All public use computers have an open desktop displayed onscreen; all non-public use computers have a login screen. All computers, besides the MACs, have Windows 10 as the operating system.
Please remember to save any work to a USB flash drive or e-mail it to yourself. Items saved to the desktop, network or C: drive will be deleted after the computer is logged off.
Printing from the Public Use Computers
The library possesses one microform reader (it can read both microfilm and microfiche) in the reference area.
If you need help loading, viewing, or handling microfilm or microfiche, please ask a library staff member or librarian for assistance.
The microfilm machine allows a patron to use a USB flash drive to save images (PDF) of the screen they are reading, if a patron has one.
Printing from the microform reader is available; all printed pages arrive at the public services' desk printer. It is $.15 per page to print, payable at the public services desk.
The library possesses two copiers near the Public Services desk. Copies cost $0.15 a copy for black and white but $0.25 for color. Use of the copiers for copying requires a RAMBLER or a guest RAMBLER card; other features the copier offers (e-mailing a scanned picture, for example) are free.
