New Technology at the Library
The Fox Lake District Library has upgraded all of our adult and juvenile public computers
to new, faster “all in one units” with larger screens.
There is less wiring to deal with and more legroom for your comfort!
We’ve also inaugurated a new service that helps you scan, store and fax
letters, documents, photos and other items.
There is a fee of $1.00 for faxes to domestic telephone numbers, $1.50 for international faxes.
This service is available in the library’s public computer section
in the second floor adult reference department.
Come to the library to take advantage of this new technology!
