The Slayton library houses a 12-station computer lab. Open for public use whenever the library is open, it is also available for group use when the library is closed. With prior arrangements, it may be reserved for private use during the day by groups. The lab has a large screen and projector, as well as a podium for presentation and instruction.
The lab was established in 2001, thanks to a generous grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The computers have since been upgraded, and wireless Internet access installed for use throughout the entire library.
Computer use is limited to 3 hours once a day. During periods of high demand, staff may reduce that time to 1 hour per day. After 3:00 p.m. time is limited to 30 minutes.
The lab closes at 4:45 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, at 6:45 on Thursday, and 12:45 on Saturdays.
