Dennis Tries Out Tech

What's app? Hot spots, Chromebooks, and Laptops, just to name a few

Dennis enjoyed the holidays and hopes you did, too. He's researching healthy eating habits and exercise after a few too many snow cones with maple syrup. 

Right now he's using one of our wi-fi hot spots with a Chromebook, equipment which can be borrowed for home use by patrons with accounts in good standing. Our Reference staff can always help patrons work with devices that are new to them. In addition to our take home options, we also have eight in-house public computers and printing, scanning, and faxing services are available. 

Make it your New Year's resolution to find out more about everything Dennis Public Library has to offer in 2022.
