The Wilson Branch has 12 public computers with internet access, Microsoft Office and printing capability. Patrons may use their library card to log into the computers for two hours each day.

Patrons without a library card may use the computers with the purchase of a guest pass for $1.

Laptops can be configured to print by following the instructions laid out here.

Item Request
If you are looking for an item that we do not have in our collection, we will do our best to purchase or acquire it from another library. Please submit this form with as much information as you can about the item.

 

 

Scanner

The Wilson Branch has a self-service multi-page scanner available for public use at the circulation desk. It can send scans straight to an email address or thumb drive. It can output files in JPG, PDF and TIFF formats and scan items in color and black and white up to 600 DPI. There is no cost to use the public scanner.

Fax Services
Faxing to anywhere in the U.S. is available at the circulation desk. The cost is $1.95 for the first page $1.00 for each additional page. The library provides patrons with a complimentary cover sheet, which is sent with the fax at no additional cost to the patron. We are unable to send international faxes at this time.

 

 

Stamps and Envelopes
Postage stamps and business envelopes are available for sale at the circulation desk. We charge the USPS rate for postage stamps (currently $.49). Envelopes cost $.20 each. There is a limit of 10 stamps per customer.

We do not sell large envelopes or file folders.

Notary Services
We provide notary services for documents from Monday through Friday. Please call ahead to ensure availability. The fee for this service is $2.00 per document.

Patrons requesting notary services will need to provide the notary with two forms of ID containing a signature. At least one of those IDs must also have a photograph on it. Birth certificates and social security cards are not acceptable forms of ID. The most common combination is a valid driver’s license and a credit card. See Section 4.4 Determining Identity of the Connecticut Notary Public Manual for more information.

Proctoring Services
Students may make arrangements for the branch librarian to act as a proctor for their exams. Note that the Wilson Branch does not have any quiet study areas, so test takers may be subject to moderate distractions from other patrons. Please contact the library (at (860) 247-8960) to make arrangements at least two weeks prior to your planned exam date.

The fee for this service is $25 per test. This fee will include one-time return mail, and or fax costs. (First Class US mail ~ to be sent out on the next business day following the exam.)  The proctor fee must be paid at the time the appointment is scheduled.
