Computers

HMML has 8 computers for patron use, 2 of which are in the Children's Department, for access to:

  • HMML card catalog
  • Internet Explorer
  • Adobe Reader 9
  • Excel
  • Powerpoint
  • Word or OpenOffice

The computers have an ongoing sign up for 45 minute increments. Patrons may extend their use beyond 45 minutes as needed unless another patron is waiting. The computers on the main floor are reserved for patrons that are 16 years of age or older. The computers in the Children's Room are reserved between 2pm and 5pm on weekdays for school-aged children so that they may work on their schoolwork. The Children's Room computers may only be used when there is a library assistant on duty and are turned off each day at 5:00pm. No patron may download any games, at any time.

You can not use external file devices on any of our computers due to our virus protection programs. The preferred method for you to "bring" a document or image to use on our computers is to email it to yourself. 

 

Printers/Copiers

All of our computers offer black & white or color printing capabilites. Patrons must select either to print in black and white or in color. Black and white prints and copies are 5 cents per page. Color prints are 25 cents per page. Our copier, located downstairs in the children's room, is black and white only - copies are 5 cents each.
