Computer facilities in Libraries

We have over 100 computers available for a range of purposes, including emailing a friend, creating a report and testing your website for accessibility.

Internet access

You can access the internet from all our branches. To find out more, please visit our Internet Access page, which has details of how to book an internet computer.

Microsoft Office

A number of our computers in every branch will have Microsoft Office installed on them. With this software you can create documents and presentations. We sell memory sticks so that you are able to save your work and take it away with you. We do not allow you to bring in your own disks.

Screen reading software

We have a number of computers that have screen reader software installed.  This enables people with visual impairments to use a computer to surf the internet or write documents. The software reads the contents of the screen aloud to you.IT help sessions
