Computers, Internet, Tech Tutor, Printing, Scanning & 3D printing
Public-access computers are provided at both branches. They have Microsoft Office and the main web browsers. You can print from them, at 15 cents per page for black and white and 50 cents per page for colour.
Photocopying is available at both branches and scanning is available in Almonte. Black and white photocopies are 15 cents per page and colour photocopies are 50 cents per page. Scanning is free. (There is no fax service, but the scanner can scan physical documents or from USB and send via email.)
Free WiFi is available for those who’d like to bring their own laptop, tablet, cell phone, or other smart device. Take a seat in one of our comfortable chairs! The library is a great place to get some work done, do some research, or simply browse.
At each location we have a literacy station computer that includes dozens of games geared towards literacy development for young children.
We have six iPads and tablets to loan for in-library use and Chromebooks and WiFi mobile hotspots for patrons to borrow. The library has a 3D printer, which is useful to our local maker community! Ideas: prototyping projects, small custom toys (figurines, gear toys), models for decor, small repair parts, brackets for shelving etc. 3D printer users need training before using the printer, info here.
