Children's Computers

childrens computers

There are two computers in the Children's Department that contain educational and entertaining games and stories. These computers are not connected to the Internet and do not require parental permission or library cards in order for a child to use them. They are available on a first come, first served basis.

There are also two Internet computers specifically for children. These computers are more highly filtered than other Internet computers in the library. Email, chat and social networking sites cannot be accessed on the children's Internet computers. A library card and parental permission is required to access all Internet computers.

The children's internet computers are loaded with Microsoft Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Access and Frontpage for school projects.
