Drop In Computer Lab Resources
The Bridge has two separate computing spaces: our front lab, which is available for drop-in computing, and our back lab, which is used for classes and backspace & special programs.
The drop-in computing lab has been downsized due to covid-19 and we currently have 8 computers stations available for use any time the Bridge is open, but we are only allowing 8- patrons in at a time and have placed a 1-hour time limit when compacity has been reached. We have 1 PC running Windows 10 Professional currently connected to our 3-D printer and 6 Computers running the new Windows 11. 2 Apple computers running Mac OS Ventura 13.1. We have recently added two mac style computers with a free open-source operating system called "Zorn" where users will be able to experience the same style of computing as windows and apple OS. All computers have internet and printer access. Some have CD or DVD burning capabilities and all are equipped with scanning capabilities. All of our computers have word processing programs (Office 2019 and Works 8) and we have assorted software titles available, including Adobe Element 2021, Adobe Photoshop CS, Adobe Acrobat Reader Pro, Microsoft Publisher 2019. Some software is not installed on every computer. If there is a program you would like to use, please ask for availability.
The front lab also serves as a wireless internet access point, and we have a special seating area for laptop users. The back room of The Bridge contains 10 computers running Windows 10 Professional, Office 2016 and connected to the internet, scanners, and a printer. This space is also available for PAVA (PAVA Space) Private Audio Video Access Space & community programs. Please contact us if your group would like to use our classroom or schedule a private zoom or skype.
