Public Computers 

All public computers in the library have Internet access and Microsoft Office software. Before using the computer, you must sign up at the Information Services Desk. Library staff reserves the right to limit users to half-hour time blocks if patrons are waiting for access to the equipment. Computers automatically shut down 15 minutes after closing. 

Compatible headphones will be provided to patrons planning to use audio files.  

All computer users are expected to comply with the library’s Internet Access Policy.


The Library has two wireless Windows 10 laptops purchased by the Friends of the J. V. Fletcher Library, Inc. for use by the public. Anyone aged 14 and older may use the laptops in the Information Services area on the main floor level. The laptop may not leave this area of the library. The laptop will have a charged battery, but patrons are encouraged to use the electrical outlets available in the space.

In order to checkout a laptop for in-house use, a valid picture identification card (student identification card, driver’s license, or state identification card) must be left with the Information Services Librarian at the Information Services Desk.  The identification will be secured in the Information Services office until the return of the laptop.

The laptop may be used for two hours at a time.  If no one is waiting to use a laptop, the laptop may be renewed for another two hours.  

Use of the laptop may not be transferred to another patron, without appropriate return of the equipment.  

The laptop must be returned to the Information Services Librarian on duty. Once the librarian has confirmed that the laptop has been returned in satisfactory condition, the patron’s identification will be returned.


Free wireless Internet is available throughout the library. The wireless network is named “Library” and does not require a password. Wireless users are expected to abide by the library’s Internet Access Policy.
