Children’s Computers

Computer Use in the Children’s Library

There are two different computer areas in the Children’s Library.  One computer area has six computers with internet access and Microsoft Office programs. These six computers require a library card to sign on and can be used by children age twelve and under.  Computer use on Children’s Library computers is limited to 2 hours per day.

Two of the six computers in this area have been designated as Family Computers.  Family Computers require a  library card to sign on and can be used by an adult, only when they are accompanied by, and supervising, a child.  Computer use on Family Computers is limited to 30 minutes per day.

 

There are six other Early Literacy Stations (ELS) with computer games for children ages 2-10 years old. The Early Literacy Station (ELS) is dynamic all-in-one digital learning resource.  Each computer is pre-programmed with over 50 educational and fun games.  Click here for the list of pre-programmed ELS games.  Some of these computers have touchscreen capabilities.  Library cards are not needed to sign-on to these computers.
