Public Computers


The Library has four computers available to the public. The first 60 minutes of each session is free. Demand is sometimes high, so you’re advised to book a session in advance.

You can use the computers to

  • browse the internet and send email
  • create documents, CVs, or letters
  • organise your finances with our spreadsheet and database software
  • create professional presentations for your hobbies or your work
  • produce leaflets and newsletters and
  • copy photographs and pictures.

We also have free wifi, so you can bring your own device.

You can’t save personal files on the computers but you can save work onto external storage devices, such as a USB memory stick. Libraries also offer printing facilities including WiFi printing.


After the first free 60 minutes, charges apply. You can buy an annual subscription if you use the computers regularly. Library members completing complex tasks such as job applications can request additional free time: up to one extra hour per day. There are also charges for services such as printing.

Help for users

Library staff can help you if you find it difficult to use the computers. Specialist equipment is also available for people with disabilities, such as larger keyboards.
Most libraries have a regular programme of IT support sessions to help people with the basics and many of these are free. Ask for details.
