Computers And Wireless Service

The Cambridge Community Library has six computer workstations that have internet access.  Internet connections are provided through Firefox, Internet Explorer and Chrome.  All computers have Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010 loaded, which includes Word, Excel, Access, PowerPoint, and several other programs.

Sound is disabled on all workstations.  To listen to online content, each patron must bring a set of headphones that can plug into the workstation.  The Library sells earbuds.

No content may be saved on the workstations once the patron is finished working.  Patrons may bring a flash drive to download documents.  Flash drives may be purchased at the library. Scanning is available for making digital copies.  There is no charge for scanning.  Check with a staff member for assistance.
