The Cheshire Library has approximately 80 computers and lately it seems like they’re all acting like cranky two year olds! So if you see an out of order sign, or a frustrated Librarian, please bear with us! Luckily, we have a great Library Technology Coordinator to trouble shoot for us. We also have a great selection of books about computers to help educate our patrons. Do you want to know how to trouble shoot, program or just turn on a computer? Would you like to know a little history, or benefits of computers? Check out our computer section (.004-.006.78) downstairs in the Reference Department...
