Patrons may save their files to their own 3½-inch, high-density disk or to a USB flash drive. While the library protects software with an anti-virus program, it cannot be responsible for the loss or damage to a patron`s data caused by viruses, or by the failure of computer hardware or software.
The Computer Center is open during regular library hours of operation; however, it closes 15 minutes before the library closes.
