We offer FAX service at $1 per page, either sending or receiving. 

Photo Copier -- 
We charge $.15 per photocopied page.

Laser printing --
We charge $.15 fee per page and can print in black & white only.

Inter Library Loans --
We participate in an Interlibrary Loan service in order to obtain materials not available in our collection.  This service depends on the generosity of public and academic libraries across the state.  For security reasons interlibrary loan materials must be signed out from the front desk. In order to receive this privilege the borrower agrees to:  1.  Accept responsibility for materials between signing out and signing in. This includes cost of damage to or loss of borrowed item. 2. Return the materials by the date due marked on the interlibrary loan slip. Not returning materials to the lending library on time may jeopardize our ability to continue receiving interlibrary loan services from that library. Please make every effort to return this material by the due date.  Please note: Borrowers may be required to have a valid library card with the MLN system in order to check out Interlibrary Loan materials.

Computer/Internet Access -- 
We offer 5 public access computers free of charge, though patrons must have their library card in order to use them.  We currently have a time limit of 45 minutes per patron.  Children under 15 years of age must have a parental permission slip signed in order to access the internet.  Children under 12 must have an adult with them to use the internet.  We also offer wireless internet access in 1 hour, 2 hour or 4 hour time increments.  To use this free service, patrons must provide their own wireless capable laptop computer and ask to use the service at our circulation desk.  Staff will then provide a wireless access login and password for the requested amount of time.  Patrons will then have 24 hours in which to use that alotted amount of time.  If more time is needed, another session can be requested, free of charge.


Literacy Tutoring-- 
We offer literacy tutoring.  Please contact the library to set up such tutoring. 


Paperback Book Exchange --
You can bring in a paperback book and take one from our exchange section.  Please note: If there is a colored dot and a library spine label on the spine of the book you are taking, that is not an exchange book, but is part of our collection and must be checked out.

Books on-Tape & CD --
We offer a wide selection of books on tape, with an ever-growing collection of books on CD.
