Computer Workstations

Every GRRL library has computer workstations that can be reserved for specific times and that are connected to the Internet via the high-speed library network. The library’s computer workstations are loaded with the Microsoft Office suite, so they may be used for preparing letters, resumes, and other documents that can then be printed out for 10 cents black/white and 50 cents color per page on the library’s printers.
