Looking for a power outlet for your laptop, tablet, cell phone, and pager? Outlets are easier to find now that we have doubled the number available throughout the building. We have also moved or placed some new furniture close to the new electrical outlets for your convenience. Look for these outlets on the Lower Level between the two wings and by the microfilm cabinets, on the First Floor in the Quiet Area in the South Wing, on the Second Floor between the two wings.
In the Copy Room on the First Floor, we have three flatbed book and document scanners that will allow files to be saved to an USB drive or sent to an email account. One scanner will even accomodate originals up to 11" x 17".
