New Connection to the Online World!
“Connecting to the online world” is one of our five strategic priorities. As a major step in meeting that priority, we installed over 100 new PCs earlier this month at Central Library and all branches.
New features include, among others
- A wide screen
- Microphone and headphone jacks
- Microsoft Office 2010 Suite
- Browser choices of Internet Explorer and Firefox
- Assistive Technology – Windows Eyes and ZoomText
At central, all public PCs have been relocated to the second floor rotunda. We often have a tech aide on duty to help. At branches, staff can assist patrons. Patrons with a valid KPL library card are eligible for up to two hours of computer time per day; guest passes are available for one hour of computer time per day for those without a KPL card who might be visiting our area.
Come visit to use this new equipment; watch for changes in the former Tech Center at central.
