Saturday 9:30 – 12:50 (closing time is 1:00)
Please note: during the COVID pandemic, our computer availability is limited.
We currently have 10 computers for adults on the 2nd floor, and sessions are limited to 1 hour.
Kids computers are currently unavailable. Two computers for teens are located in the Teen Zone, and sessions are limited to 30 minutes.
You do not need a library card to use a public computer. To use a computer, stop at the 2nd floor Help Desk (adults) or Youth Services desk (teens) to get a pin code. Login on the AVAILABLE screen using the pin code, and the login on the Windows login screen, using the password “public”. When you are finished, click the red X next to the timer at the top of the screen, to log out. The Library uses Deep Freeze software, which reboots the machine after logout and removes any data or history from the last session. Patron privacy is important to us!
Wireless Internet (Wi-Fi)
The Library offers some of the fastest Internet available. Through the Maine School and Library Network (MSLN), we have a 1Gbps fiber connection and wireless access points throughout the building. This is available 24 hours/day.
To connect, find the Curtis Memorial Library Wi-Fi signal through your device- there is no password, but there is a policy page that must be agreed to before you are connected.
We now offer wireless printing to the printers near the Help Desk on the 2nd floor. For details, visit this page.
Printing wirelessly or from our public computers is ¢10/page for Black & White, and ¢25/page for Color.
The Library has two color copiers – one on the 1st floor between the Lending Services Desk and the Teen Zone, and another on the 2nd floor near the Help Desk. Cash only, pay at the Help Desk.
¢10/page for Black & White and ¢25/page for color.
There is a scanning machine on the 2nd floor near the Help Desk. This machine is hooked up to a dedicated computer, so you can email scanned documents, or save them to a USB (thumb) drive. The scanning computer sessions are limited to 30 minutes.
