Children’s Computer Stations

Internet Stations

  • Two children’s computers are available in the Children’s Library for kids 11 years of age and under.
  • Computer sessions are a timed half hour to a maximum of one hour per day per child.  Children login with their library card or a guest pass obtained at the Front Desk.
  • Parental permission is required to use the computer stations.  For children with library cards, permission can be given verbally by a parent if he or she is with the child in the library or a note is placed on the child’s library record indicating internet permission has been granted.  Kids without a library card must have a parent or guardian present to give parental/guardian permission and receive a guest pass.
  • Both stations have Microsoft Office programs such as Word, PowerPoint, and Excel available for doing homework or other projects.
  • Internet access is filtered using NetNanny, to provide safety while using the web.
