More Than a Library…
Western Allegheny Community Library is practically a mini-office center! We have desktop computers, productivity software, high-speed internet, Wi-Fi, printers, a copier, fax machine, scanner, and more.
Desktop computers are available in the adult area. Computers are accessed with a valid library card, or you may request a visitor pass at the front desk. You receive one hour of use initially and may request extra time if no one is waiting.
Software available on the library's computers includes:
- Microsoft Office (Excel, Word, PowerPoint, Publisher, Access)
- Internet Browsers (Edge, Firefox, Google Chrome)
- Media Software (Windows Media Player, VLC)
The library offers free Wi-Fi if you bring in your laptop (Windows or Mac) or mobile device. There is no fee to use the Wi-Fi, and it is available throughout the library - even outside in the Backyard or parking lot! Connect to the "Western Allegheny Community Library" wireless network (no password necessary).
Scan, Copy, and Fax
Our Xerox machine makes high quality, fast copying available at a minimal cost (25¢ per page for black and white and 55¢ for color). You are responsible for all copies you make, so please ask a staff member for assistance if needed. Faxing is also available for $1.50 per page. Scanning and emailing a document as a PDF is 50¢ per page.
