Hard at Work on the Laptops

While many people think of books when they think of libraries, computer access is rapidly becoming more and more important for library users. These students are busily typing essays on two of the twelve laptops that students can use in the library. We have 26 desktop computers, too, so there’s seldom a time when a student can’t find a free computer. Of course, many students prefer to carry their own laptops with them, a growing trend that caused us to upgrade our wireless access this year. We have a second wireless network to handle the extra traffic. Students can log onto our secure network for printing and to access programs that teachers have set up for them. Visitors can still use our guest network. Additional wireless hubs throughout the building have made connection much faster and smoother.
