Computer Labs, Longmont Library

 

Self Service in the Computer Labs

Beginning January 4, 2010 we implemented computer software to streamline reservations for computers and to handle printing in the labs. We've prepared handouts to guide you through the process:

 

Configuration of the Computer Labs

The library has three distinct areas with computers for public use. Each area has a different focus, audience and resources. Review the Internet and Computer Use Policy (Adobe .pdf file, 86kb) for guidelines on using all computers in the library.

Adult Computer Lab

This lab is primarily for patrons who are age 18 or older . Patrons under age 18 may be in the lab only when accompanied by a parent or guardian and may not access the computers in this area. The purpose of computers throughout the library is primarily for information and research. Internet filtering software is used is this area. It is contrary to library rules to access materials that are obscene, pornographic, or otherwise sexually explicit. Web-based email, chat rooms and games are permitted. Word-processing on IBM-compatible computers is available. View details on policies and programs for this lab.

Children's and Teen Computer Lab

The Longmont Public Library Children's and Teen Services (CATS) Computer Lab provides filtered access through Websense to the Internet, a wide variety of software, including word processing software (Microsoft Word), Publisher, Power Point, and CD-ROM software for all ages. The CATS Lab is divided into two sections, one for teens ages 14-17 and another for younger users under age 14. View details on policies and programs for this lab.
