The Hagaman Memorial Library has increased its reopening services in several areas. The library has extended the range of its Public Wi-Fi Network signal to outside of the library building. Outside Wi-Fi antennae have been installed covering the front of library building facing Main Street and covering the side and back parking lot areas of the building. Connecting to the outside Wi-Fi is easy on the library grounds or while being parked in a vehicle in the library’s parking lot. The outside Wi-Fi is available for use 24 hours per day.
The library has opened a computer lab in the lower level DeMayo Room, which can be entered through the back portion of the library building. Please note: Hagaman Memorial Library is temporarily changing its computer lab schedule. From the week of February 15 through the week of April 12 the Computer Lab will be open during the following days: Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 am – 1 pm / 2:30 pm – 7 pm; and Fridays, and Saturdays from 10 am – 1 pm / 2 pm – 5 pm. The Computer Lab will temporarily be closed on Mondays and Wednesdays and scheduling for Mondays will resume the week of April 19, 2021.
Patrons wishing to use the computers need to make reservations 24 hours in advance by calling the Library at 203-468-3890. Scheduled computer sessions are for 75 minutes. Walk-in use of the lab without an advanced reservation is discouraged and handled as the lab reservation schedule of that day permits or will need to be scheduled for another day.
