New Computers at Pineville Library

2014-new-pcs004_300wAfter over 8 years of durable service, the old Windows XP public computers in Pineville were retired this week, and replaced by brand new PC’s with Windows 7, and larger 21″ widescreen monitors. This means that all three branches of the McDonald County Library now have public PCs with the same OS, so there will be greater consistency for patrons when they travel between branches.

(Windows 7 Professional was chosen over the latest Windows 8 version partly for consistency, and partly because the Windows 8 interface is so radically different from everything else it has a steep learning curve for users unfamiliar with the new system.)

“Portions of the Summer Reading Program are funded by a grant awarded by the Missouri State Library. This project is supported by the Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act as administered by Missouri State Library, a division of the Office of the Secretary of State.”

As always, we encourage library patrons to take advantage of our free Internet and public computers. Your old login information will continue to work exactly as before, and any print credit you have in your account remains accessible at all three of our libary’s branches. If you do not yet have a library card with us, free guest accounts are quick and easy to get from our circulation desk, and requires no personal information or forms to be filled out for adults. (Minors must have parental permission and supervision.)

These newer computers, along with the recent significant upgrade to our Internet access speeds, should help make your library computing experience a very positive one.
