Using our computers also gives you access to printing facilities (charges may apply) as well as access to all our electronic resources, some of which are accessible from home with library membership.

We also provide free access to document scanners.

Free Wi-Fi is available in all our libraries where you are welcome to use personal laptops and other mobile devices.
