Technology at your fingertips
Public computers, in-house laptops, printers, and fast internet!
Whether you need access to a computer, or just a quiet place to escape from the home or office, pull up a chair in the Learning Commons. Our computers have mechanical keyboards and hardy mice, the latest version of Microsoft Office, all three major browsers, as well as other common software tools.
Inside or outside: Pull up a chair, couch, bench, or parking spot. We don’t just let the wireless spill out of the building, we deliberately broadcast with outside access points. Our free wireless Internet service is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Do you need access to a high-capacity laser printer, copier, or scanner? Look no further! Our Library printer is available to you from our computers, or your own device. Check with the Reference Librarian or Circulation Desk if you need help.
How to Print from Your Own Device
The most important step is to connect to the library’s Wi-Fi, called “The Community Library” (no password is required). This is how the two devices find and communicate with each other.
Then try printing from your device as you normally would. Don’t forget that you will need to select the library’s printer, also called “The Community Library.”
The printer works with these personal devices:
- Apple iPhone or iPad
- Android phone or tablet
- Apple laptop
- Windows laptop
If your document will not print:
- Check to see that you are printing a document no larger than 8.5” x 11” – the standard letter size.
- For laptop users: Go to your Settings and then Printers and add the library’s printer, “The Community Library,” from there. If you already see the printer, then delete it from your settings and try re-adding it. (The IP address for the printer is 172.31.1.5, in case you need to find it this way.)
- You can always ask for help at a service desk.
Steam® Café: Gaming at The Community Library
Steam is a gaming platform available on the web. Accounts are free, and tied to your own email address. While you are connected to Steam from our wireless (from any computer, yours or ours) you will have access to our shared licenses. Simply open the desktop app, login with your account credentials, and you will see our games in your library.
Note, you might have to provide a security code. Steam will send this to your email address to verify it’s you. This is Steam security, nothing to do with us. Now, just settle in and enjoy some online gaming!
