Public Computing at the Emporia Public Library

in the Adult and Children's Department.

We now have Wireless Internet Access! Go to our Wireless page to check out the details!

We have 23 computers available for the public. There are 4 in the Children's Room and 19 in Adult Services.

In the Children's Room all 4 of the computers have Internet access and the capacity to play CD-ROM games. The computers are reserved for those in grades 6 and under. The computers print to a central printer next to the Children's reference desk. Printouts are $0.15 a page for black and white. Please go here to view our Internet Use Policy.

In the Adult Services area 17 of those computers have Internet access and one is dedicated to word processing. This includes one station that is ADA compliant and handicap accessible. Printing from the public computers is available. It is $0.15 per page for black and white and $1.00 per page for color printing. We also have a computer in the Genealogy and Family History Department for research only. This computer is connected to our microfilm scanner that allows patrons to scan our collection of newspapers and then save the scanned image as a digital file. Printing off of the microfilm is available at $0.30 per page.

For those patrons that find using a regular mouse difficult, we do have a stationary rolling ball mouse at your request. Plug-ins for your headphones are available on most machines and all offer Microsoft Office 2007. Only those in grade 7 or older can use the computers in the Adult Service's Area on the second floor.
