Kalamazoo, MI –

Thanks to a generous grant, Kalamazoo Public Library is now able to offer Apple iMac computers for public use. iMacs are available during normal open hours at Central Library (2nd floor rotunda, lower level Teen area, and first floor Children’s Room) and at the Oshtemo Branch Library.

KPL’s iMacs feature Apple’s new OS X Mountain Lion operating system, with high speed Internet access and Safari, Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox browsers.

Popular software packages include Apple’s iLife (iPhoto, iMovie, GarageBand), iWork (Pages '09 for word processing and writing, Numbers '09 for spreadsheets, and Keynote '09 for presentations), plus Microsoft Office for Mac (Word, Excel, PowerPoint). MS Office files are compatible cross-platform, which means that files created on a PC it will work on a Mac and vice-versa. The iMacs also feature Photo Booth, a fun and easy to use photo editing program.

Like all KPL public computers, iMacs are available on a first-come, first-served basis. There is a two hour per day limit for Internet computer usage for KPL cardholders. Limited passes for guest users are also available. Patrons may also reserve a computer through our online reservation system.

Stop by and give one a try!
