New Netbooks Are Here!

We've known it for a long time! The library's laptops were old, slow and frustrating. Trying to search on the World Wide Web was near impossible and waiting for the computer to recognize a USB drive could take forever. But no more!

Last Thursday, the library started circulating 15 new netbook computers. These computers are slimmer, lighter, faster and just plain cute! Each computer uses Vista as the operating system and has Microsoft Office 2007 installed. The only thing these computers can't do is play a CD or DVD. For that capability, you'll have to use one of our older laptops. So, yes, to answer your question, we still have the older laptops; we'll just use these when we run out of the netbooks.

So please stop by the library's circulation desk and check out a new netbook. We think you'll find them a vast improvement. Have fun and enjoy!
