Computers


computer workstationThe Library is proud to be a state-of-the-art public access computing facility. At the Main Library, we have 32 Windows workstations for adults and teens and 13 for children. We also have 4 iMacs. Our computers offer a high-speed Internet connection as well as the Microsoft Office 2013 Suite. Four touch-screen early literacy stations in the Children's Department provide educational technology for preschoolers.

Computer use is free, but does require a Connecticut public library card in good standing. Black and white printing costs 10 cents per page, and color printing is 50 cents per page. A large print keyboard, trackball mouse, and iZoom screen magnifier/reader software are available at the Information Desk. For your own safety, anything saved to the hard drive of a library computer is erased at the end the day. Please be sure to save your work to removable storage such as a flash drive or a CD.

We also have a Book Scan Center which allows you to scan documents or photos and e-mail or save them to a flash drive, smartphone, or Google Docs. In addition, you may send faxes with the Book Scan Center for 25 cents per page.

We offer unsecured Wi-Fi at the Main Library and Yalesville Branch. Wireless printing from Windows and Mac laptops is available at the Main Library. In addition, we offer a secured VPN (Virtual Private Network) connection for those bringing their own wireless devices to the Main Library.

If you wish to set up a secured VPN connection, please follow the instructions below. A print copy of the instructions is available at the Information Desk.
