You can also check out one of our laptops or tablets for use either on-site or at home - just call us to arrange pick-up!

WiFi

We are delighted to offer free, 24/7 access to wireless internet.  The WiFi is available from outside the Library building, so you can access it when the Library is closed.  Just look for network "Olson Library"!

Public Computers

The Walter E.

In addition to our 7 public computers, we have several laptops (both chromebook and traditional) and tablets that are available for checkout.  Our laptops and Kindle Fire tablets are available to check out 3 days, while our iPads and Lenova tablets are for in-library use only.
