Enlightening and Inspiring Generations with Generations of Ideas

When I enter a library, when I enter the world of books, I feel the ghosts of the past on my shoulders urging me to speech.  I hear Patrick Henry cry to the Burgsses, ‘Is Life so dear, or Peace so sweet, to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery?’  I hear Sojourner Truth tell me that the hand that rocks the cradle can also rock the boat, and William Lloyd Garrison say, ‘I am in earnest, I will not be silenced.’

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, including Internet usage policies, please see the computers page at this link
