Internet Computers

The library provides free public access to the Internet. Five Internet workstations are available for use on the Adult Services level. Each computer is installed with Internet Explorer, Firefox and Microsoft Office 2013. Filtering software is not used.

A valid library card from a SWAN library is required to access the Internet workstations. Guest registrations are available for users without a library card or for visitors from outside the area. 

Internet sessions are timed and may be limited if patrons are waiting. The maximum time allowed per day is 2 hours.

Printing is available but limited to black and white copies. The charge is $.10 a page and can be paid at the Check Out Desk.

Users are reminded to save their files and documents. Saving to a USB flash drive is recommended as all the Internet computers have front-mounted USB ports. Please note that specialized software for burning CDs and/or DVDs is not provided.

Access to the Internet is available to all ages. A parent/guardian who does not want their child (under the age of 18) to have access to the Internet while at the CHPL should notify library staff to have their child's library card blocked from Internet use.

Read our Internet Policy.

WiFi Access

Free wireless access to the Internet is available to anyone with a WiFi enabled laptop or device. No password is required to connect. While most devices will automatically recognize the library's wireless network, the library does not guarantee connectivity and library staff is not available to troubleshoot user issues. The library's WiFi will come up on your device as CHPL.

Users are cautioned that the wireless network is not secure and that any transmission of financial or personal information is at their own risk.

Printing from the wireless network is not available.
