  • Copy machines, scanning, and emailing of materials within allowable copyright laws
  • Retrieving books or other materials from the library shelves
  • Checking out, returning and/or renewing library materials in person, over the phone and via email
  • Access to library study rooms, equipment and computers
  • Personalized assistance with conducting library research in the library or from a distance as appropriate

The library also has several pieces of equipment to assist you, including a Baum Poet Compact scanner/reader, and an LCD screen that you can connect to a laptop.
