At present we have reduced the number of available public computers to two in order to achieve social distancing. They are only available to use when pre-booked by telephone or email. Each session is limited to 30 minutes for essential use only. Due to social distancing we will not be able to offer one to one IT assistance.
We have four Windows 10 desktop PCs for use by the public. The machines are internet-capable and are linked to the library printer.
The computers are generally available on a first come first served basis. They can be busy on occasion, so if your need is essential we strongly recommend that you ring the library to reserve a computer for a specific date and time.
Library members may use a public computer FREE for 30 minutes each day. Each subsequent 30 minutes costs £1.50.
For non-library members the fee is £2.50 per half hour.
Those 18 years and under in full-time education, jobseekers in receipt of JSA or ESA and those whose use of PCs is severely restricted by a physical or cognitive difficulty may use the public computers FREE for an hour each day. Each subsequent half hour costs £1.
If you’re a regular computer user you may be able to save money with our range of computer subscriptions. Please ask at the desk.
Our volunteers will try to offer help should you ask for it. Please note that this very much depends upon the IT skills and knowledge of the individual volunteers who are on duty at the time of your visit. We cannot guarantee that someone will be able to help you.
