It's Your Library; Check it Out!


One of our more popular services here at the Library is the opportunity to use a personal computer.  Numerous adults and children stop throughout the day to read their Emails, surf the web, play games and print copies of important documents. Our only problem is that we have 5 PC stations and sometimes have more people than stations. So I thought I might take the opportunity to share some current policies with you.
 
If you hold a current library card, you are considered a “patron” and will be given a 2 hour block of time at a computer station. Unfortunately, we do have to limit that time to 2 hours, because as I pointed out above, we often have more people than stations. Please note that if it is busy and there are patrons waiting to use a station, we may have to shorten your time. If you do not have a library card or are from out of town, you are considered a “guest,” and will only be given 30 minute block of time to use the Computer Station. Please note that if it gets busy and there are patrons waiting to use a station, we will shorten your time. For East Troy residents who do not have a library card, you might see why it would be good for you to get one!
 
Printing is also something that we offer…however; we do have a charge for this: $0.15 per side black & white and $0.50 per side color. Also note that we have a 50 page limit for printing. Lately, people have been coming in wanting to print over 50 and sometimes up to 100 copies. If that is the case for you, I would strongly suggest you find a local Kinko’s to do the printing for you. My printer cartridges are much more expensive than yours!
 
We also will help you to Fax and/or Email documents. There is a $3.00 charge for you to Fax and we do not offer any kind of confirmation service for you. It is up to you to contact the entity you have faxed to see if your fax has arrived. Our charge for helping you to scan and Email documents is $1.00. Be sure and ask us if you do not understand any of our policies or charges.
 
I do want to let everyone know that Aurora at Home will be visiting us on Wednesday October 24th from 4:00pm – 5:00pm to host a program which will give you insight into self-care, mindfulness and how to maintain wellness during the burnout periods in individual experience. Please join us for “Balancing Your Wellness Wheel!”
 
New books and new DVDs are arriving, so please stop by and see what we are adding to the collection. Need research help? We will assist you with that as well. We are you library; stop by and check us out!
