Starting Tuesday, May 26th, Adams County Library will open its doors to the public for limited services on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, 10 am to 4:30 pm.

As the first part of Adams County Library’s re-opening process, patrons may visit the library in person. 

The stacks are closed to the public, but Library card holders can request staff to pull materials from the shelves, have items photocopied or faxed, and do quick internet searches on a public computer.  

Space in the library is limited. Patrons are encouraged to wear masks, observe social distancing guidelines, and to keep visits short. 

The Library is continuing curbside service.  To set up a pickup, call or email the staff with notice of the items you want. Staff will set up an appointment for pickup. 

Contact us at 608-339-4250 or .

All checked-out items have been renewed until July 1. They may be returned any time using the book drop at the back door, or inside the library.

Library staff are excited to welcome you back!

Using Library Computers & WiFi

Free WiFiWiFi at the Library

The Adams County Library has free WiFi access, available 24 hours.  The signal does not reach far outside the building, but if you can see it on your device, it is available for use.  No password is needed but please be aware that there is no security on the system.

You can now print from your wireless device at the Library!  Our new Epson XP-830 printer offers black-and-white or color printing from many online applications.  The cost is the same as for our regular printer--25 cents for each black-and-white copy, 50 cents for each color copy.  Ask a staff member to help you get set up.

 

Public Computers at the LibraryPublic Computers at the Library

The Library offers 10 workstations with internet connections ready for use.  These are available for use whenever the library is open.  No information is saved on the computer when a patron logs off.  Information may be downloaded to a flash drive (available for purchase from the Library), stored in the “cloud” online (Dropbox is a popular option), burned to a CD, or emailed to the patron’s personal account for later access.  Items can be printed in black and white for 25 cents a page; color prints are available for 50 cents a page.

You can reserve a computer for a specific time through the MyPC application.  You will need your library card number and your PIN number to make a reservation.

A reservation is not needed to use a computer.  Any open computer in the Library is available for login by any patron with her/his library card number and PIN number.  Guest passes are available for anyone who does not have a valid library card.  Forgotten PIN numbers can be reset by any library staff member—just ask for help.

Computers are available for a maximum of 120 minutes—2 hours—each day.  Additional time for needs like online testing may be arranged by speaking with Library staff in advance of the date.
