You have access to MORE

The library connects users to over one million library items through the MORE shared system. Today registering for a library card means more than just great books.  DVDs, music CDS, video games, magazines, audio books, e-books and magazines and juvenile braille books can also be checked out with your library card.  Your card also provides online access to databases such as Ancestry Library Edition, Heritage Quest, Auto Repair Source, and Novelist Plus.

Computer Policy

  • Users must be registered with a library card.
  • Individuals or families may sign up for 30-minute sessions, which can be renewed if no one is waiting.
  • Because these terminals are located in a public place we reserve the right to restrict visual images. If you are found viewing objectionable material you will be asked to exit from that web site. If it happens a second time your internet session will be terminated.

Laptop Checkout

The laptops can be checked out at the circulation desk by anyone over 18 years of age with a valid library card and are for in-library use only.
