New Self-Checkout Machine and Computers Streamline Operations
At the request of the Branch Librarian and County Support Staff, Friends voted in August to fund new computers for patron use and Self Checkout Machines. Four new desktop computers replace the old computers and will have updated operating systems, Wi-Fi Access to Library's wireless network, and updated versions of commonly used software applications. The Self Checkout Machine help library staff minimize wait time by allowing patrons to check out their materials on their own using a scanning device and a library card. Learn more about recent Friends contributions.
