Technology Services

Public Computer and Wifi Access

Patrons can use our public access computer for anything from checking their email or social media, to filling out job applications. We also provide access to wifi if a patron would prefer the use of their own electronic devices.

Printing, Copying, and Fax

Printing and copies can be done for 10 cents per black and white page or 75 cents per color page. If a patron needs to fax a document, the librarian on staff can assist with that priced at 1 dollar for the first page and 50 cents for each page after.

Reference Help

The librarians on staff are available to help answer your reference questions, provide technology help, and even give book recommendations to the best of their ability. If you have more detailed research questions, the West Virginia Library Commission provides access to a collection of databases and archives- the librarian on staff can help you access these resources.
