The computer labs at the Tipton County Public Library serve to make a broad range of information and research resources available to all library patrons. We make our labs open to all of our patrons, no matter their age. Our computer labs serve to enhance and uplift the library’s mission of providing resources for lifelong learning and to enhance the cultural climate of Tipton County.
We provide computers in the Children’s Department for those 12 and younger to play games, explore, and learn new and exciting things. Adults, 13 and older, are more than welcome to use the computers in our main computer lab for researching, e-mailing, gaming, and staying connected to friends and family through social media.
