When Austin was watching the totals of the FLX Gives fundraiser (Thank you to all who helped and made donations), he was watching them on the new public computers available at the Benedek Memorial Library. (Scroll further down to get the totals for the FLX Gives fundraiser.)
The new computers were funded (in part) by a grant from the Foundation for Southern Tier Libraries. The three public computers are updated, work faster and have great graphics. Our pervious public computers were older and could not to run videos such as You Tube videos. The graphics were jumpy when viewing a video. Now videos run smoothly. If you need to watch some videos for employment, education, or just for fun, our computers can play the videos smoothly. Please bring your own wired headphones to listen to any videos. Our computers do not have speakers. Patrons can use the public computers for 30 minutes intervals. Patrons can have two intervals for up to 60 minutes total per day (as long as there is not a waiting list for the computers). You can do research with the Internet on our computer(s) or use the free Wi-Fi access on your own computer, tablet or phone. Need to print something out; our public computers can print to black and white or color printers. Black and white prints are $0.10 per page and color prints are $.25 per page. We do request patrons call ahead to use a computer, so we can make sure a computer is available when they have need for them. Due to Covid19 safety measures, only two computers are available at this time. Check out our public computers and the many other services we offer at the Benedek Memorial Library!
