Welcome to the Hometown Public Library

Roberton Computer Center

The Roberton Computer Center is located on the far right-hand side of the library, next to the staff office. The computer center was opened in December of 2009, and is equipped with three Dell computers. Each computer is equipped with Microsoft Windows 7 and Microsoft Office, including Word, Excel, and Power Point. All have internet access and printing is available on our Toshiba printer for a fee.

The Hometown Public Library strives to provide all residents of the community access to resources for education and information through both print and non-print material. Therefore, we encourage the use of the library computers by patrons as a research and learning tool. However, internet use is a privilege, not a right, and therefore patrons' compliance to rules and regulations is necessary and will be enforced according the Roberton Computer Center Policy. This policy is based on "Public Access to Electronic Information Networks: A Model Policy for ILLINET Libraries," adopted by the Illinois State Library Advisory Committee, May 23, 1996.
