The Schroon Lake Public Library has three desktop computers that patrons may use. Patrons may sign-up for a half hour time slot, if there is no waiting list, patrons can sign-up for an additional half-hour time slot  Computers are available on a first-come first-serve basis.  Patrons sign-in at the circulation desk.

Personal Laptops

Patrons may use their personal laptops and other devices in the library.  Sound must be turned off or headphones must be used to listen to audio.  Unfortunately we do not have power outlets for patrons to plug into for power. Patrons may use the outlets that are in the meeting room on the first floor as long as the room is not being used for a meeting or event.
