ACPL Computer Lab

 

We have the equipment to help you accomplish many of your technology-related goals, and if you need assistance, we also have awesome librarians who can assist you!

Computers

Our computer lab is equipped with fifteen desktop computers, and we have five additional computers on the upper level of the library. We also have seven laptops available for in-library use only. All of our computers are equipped with Windows 7, Microsoft Office 2016, and wired internet access. Adult card holders and guests are welcome to use any of these computers during the library's hours of operation. A library card or guest pass (available at the Information Desk on the upper level) is required for computer use, and  patrons are required to agree to the library's Computer and Internet Use Policy before using library computers or connecting to the library's wireless internet network.

Printers, Copiers, and Scanners

Patrons have access to two printers, two copiers, two flatbed scanners, and an overhead scanner. Costs for printing are 10¢ per page for black-and-white and 50¢ per page for color. Copies may only be made in black-and-white and cost 10¢ per page. There is no cost for scanning. 

Wireless Internet Access

Library patrons may use their personal computers and devices to connect to the library's wifi network. This is a two-step process. First, connect to the Library Guest network. Then, open your browser (this may occur automatically) to view, read, and accept the Terms of Use policy. Once you have accepted the policy's terms, you will be redirected to the library website, at which point you should be fully connected to the wireless network. If you have any questions, please visit the Information Desk.
