Technology

Our second floor is designed to provide power and connectivity wherever you want to be. Increased wireless access will enable you to connect to the internet at speeds of 300-500mbs from any location on the floor. Comfortable seating areas will be set up throughout the floor where people can work and access power to charge their devices. Through a low-profile power distribution system, you will be able to connect to power easily without being anchored or encumbered by cables. Wireless printing will also be available.

Our revamped Technology Center features 12 new iMacs with enough power to handle big and small tasks. Solstice Pod, a new wireless visual collaboration solution will enable customers to share their screens with the entire class during technology courses and participate in class using their own devices. Seating capacity can support up to 31 people at a time, and tall work tables have been incorporated to encourage maker activity and tinkering. The Technology Center also contains assistive technology for the hearing-impaired. The new space will allow for expansion of our popular technology classes, which cover a range topics for beginner to advanced computer users.

The Newsroom, which can be flipped to a programming space that accommodates up to 50 people, contains a drop-down screen and ceiling projector, perfect for presentations or screenings.

Five of our nine study rooms on the second floor have been outfitted with enhanced technology, including collaboration software and 55″ HD televisions, so you can collaborate efficiently and effectively.

A new Computer Commons will contain 24 Windows PCs. Additionally, library cardholders may borrow one of 12 laptops from our Information Desk.
