Public Computer Use

 

Perry Memorial Library provides a number of networked computers for use by patrons in the library for internet browsing, word processing, and other activities. We do not provide earphone or ear buds at the computer stations, but ear buds may be purchased at the circulation and reference desks for $1.50 or brought from home. Anyone using our public computer stations and Internet services  - including the WiFi - are subject to Perry Memorial Library's Internet Access Policy and the library's Behavior Policy (see below).


The library provides Wireless (WiFi) internet access. To access the WiFi, use the "Perry-Public" network. There is no password. 

 

As of 2016, all of our public stations include MS Office 2010 suite - Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Publisher. They all have internet access - we suggest (and provide) using Mozilla Firefox as your browser. All stations have access to a printer which prints in both color and black and white. The cost for printing is 10 cents for each black and white page and 25 cents for each color page.  

 

There are twenty (20) adult computer stations - for use by those 13 years of age and older - located on the second floor. 

 

There are ten (10) Internet access computers for children located on the first floor. These computers have Facebook and YouTube blocked from use as well as the normal federally mandated filters. There are also four (4) non-Internet access computers for children's use loaded with educational games appropriate for preschool through fourth grade. There are a few laptop computers available for checkout by parents wishing to stay with their children in the Children's Department - please ask at the Children's Services Desk.
