Gloucester City Library


Computer Services

The library has Windows XP, Windows 7 and iMac Mountain Lion computers for public use. To use a computer, please ask at the Circulation Desk. There is no specific time limit on computer use but a first-on first-off policy applies during extremely busy periods. Non-members may use our computers as Visitors for limited periods of time, depending on availability. Non-members are asked to join the library if they will be using the computers on a regular basis.

If you will be listening to audio, you must use earphones.

Earbuds are available for purchase at the library for $1.99. Headsets suitable for use with Skype and other video chat programs may be borrowed without charge at the Circulation Desk, or purchased for $10. 

Printing is available from most computers at 15 cents per page for black and white, and $1 per page for color. Flash drives are available for purchase at the library for $10.  Our Windows XP computers have floppy disk drives, and you may purchase a disk at the library for $1. However, people have experienced problems trying to open files that were previously saved on floppy disks, so we discourage their use.

CD-R disks are available at the library for $1 and CD-RW disks are available for $2.  

See our Wireless page to find out how to connect your laptop to our wireless internet network. 

We now offer a mobile website, including catalog.  

The library offers a rotating series of computer training sessions. Classes designed around our newer computers are in the works. Schedules will be available in the Gloucester City News, on the bulletin board in the library entrance, and on our What's New At the Library page.
