The Jasper County Public Library has a mobile computer lab, free of charge and available to area colleges, businesses, and local organizations for hands-on training for their employees, members or students. The purpose of the mobile computer lab is to bring computer-based instruction to residents of our service area, and includes laptops that are configured with a base set of software, including Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, Publisher) and basic Internet tools, such as Internet Explorer.

The lab may only be used at the JCPL location where it is assigned for any given month as per a rotation schedule, and JCPL does not have licenses for other software products to be installed, however, organizations may install their own licensed software if they have no expectation of support.

The mobile lab is loaned in its entirety. Components are not available for loan on an individual basis. No fee or deposit is currently charged for the use of the lab, but donations are always gratefully accepted.
