Public Computer Upgrades Scheduled

The public computers at the Main Library and the Cybrary are scheduled for upgrades the week of October 13, 2014. To accommodate this work:

  • Computers at the Main Library will be unavailable to the public all day on Tuesday, October 14.
  • The Cybrary will be closed on Wednesday, October 15.

Wireless internet will remain available at both locations. In addition, public computers at the Carrboro Branch Library will be unaffected by this work and available to all Orange County Public Library customers from 3:30-8pm on both days. Once upgrades are complete, customers will enjoy a new and improved reservation and printing system. While the look will change, basic functionality will remain the same. Thank you for your patience during this process.
