Public Computers

We have four desktop PCs for use by the public.  All run Windows 10, are web connected and linked to the library printer. One PC is also linked to a scanner. Free wi-fi is available throughout the library.

You don’t have to be a library member to use the computers, though you’ll save money if you are.

Reservations

Walk-in sessions are usually available but at busy times we can’t guarantee that there’ll be a computer free for you to use. If you need to use a PC for something vital or time-sensitive – for example printing travel documents or tickets – please ring us in advance during our opening hours on 01609 534584 to book a computer.

WI-FI printing

Wi-Fi printing from your iOS or Android device is available. You’ll need a library member account in order to log-on. Printing costs just 10p for each A4 black and white page.

Fees

Our public computers are open to all. Library members get an hour of computer time FREE each day. For non-members the fee is £2.50 per hour. After that it’s £1.50 for each extra 30 minutes.

Tip: Joining the library is easy and free. It makes good sense if you’re planning to be a frequent computer user.

Printing costs 10p per page for A4 black and white, and 50p per page for A4 colour.

Concessions

Those aged 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.

Internet Subscriptions

If you’re a regular computer user you may be able to save money with an internet subscription.  Please ask at the desk.

Computer help

If you’re using a public computer and need help, our volunteers will try to assist if you ask.  Please note that this depends upon the IT skills and knowledge of the volunteers on duty when you visit. We can’t guarantee that someone will be available to help you.
