Appointments

The library will offer 50 minute appointments to use a public computer. Appointments will be available during all open hours.

Each appointment will begin on the hour. If you are more than 15 minutes late you will forfeit your appointment.

How do I make an appointment?

Please call our reference desk during open hours at (603) 766-1720 to make an appointment.

Walk up appointments will be made as the schedule allows, but it is best to call ahead.

How does computer access work?

When you have made an appointment for computer access, you will also be able to print, fax, and make copies if you wish. If you wish to use a scanner, or microfilm reader, please let us know when you make your appointment, and we will assign you to the correct computer.

Please try to bring change or small bills for the photo copier and print station.  The reference desk is not able to provide change. The copier costs $.15 per page, and printing is $.10 for black and white, and $.25 per page for color.

May I use a library laptop?

No, the reference desk will not be loaning out laptops, or any other equipment like headphones, chargers, etc. Please remember to bring your own.

Can I stay longer if no one else has signed up?

Please speak with a member of staff when you have arrived and we will determine if this is possible, on a case-by-case basis.

Can I use the restroom?

Restrooms are cleaned once daily in the evening. 

We suggest they be used only when absolutely necessary due to health safety concerns. 

Please clean/disinfect the bathroom when you are finished, with materials provided. 

What safety precautions is the library taking?

In accordance with the City’s mask ordinance, anyone over the age of 6 will be required to wear a face mask to enter the library, and at all times while in the building. Any person who does not comply with this policy will not be allowed in the building, or will be asked to leave.

Staff will maintain strict social distancing with all visitors, remaining a minimum of six feet away. For this reason, we may not be able to assist everyone in the way you are used to. Thank you for your patience while we navigate this together!

We ask all visitors to maintain social distancing with anyone not in their family group.

Bathrooms will be available on the first and second floors. Note that our bathrooms are cleaned every day, but we cannot guarantee they are cleaned in between uses.

In concert with the city, the library has taken the following steps before offering these services:

  • Upgraded the library building HVAC system.
  • Completed a detailed cleaning of the library building.
  • Deep cleaned frequently used surfaces.
  • Obtained adequate stores of disinfectant and hand sanitizer, as well as protective gear for staff.

In addition, all returning items are quarantined for 7 days. We also quarantine all newly ordered and received items arriving in the library, before they are added to the library’s collection.

All library services will be operated with the minimum number of library staff. We ask for your patience as we deliver our core services in the safest way possible.

How long will you offer this service?

Until further notice. Since our service levels are determined based on a number of public health factors, we do not know when our services, or our hours, will change. Please check our website for updates.
