Anyone can use the computers in our libraries. It's free for library members and there's a small charge for visitors. You will need to agree to our Acceptable Use Policy.

We limit the amount of time you can use the computers each day so that everyone can use them. If you are aged 15 or over you can have up to two hours a day. If you are aged 14 or under you can have up to one hour a day.
You can book a PC in advance at any library.

We've listed websites that can help you get started online on the cyberLibrary.
We actively encourage young people to use our internet services. Young people aged under fifteen need to get the written agreement from their parent or carer first. We have a simple form for them to use.
We aim to filter out sites which are not appropriate for viewing in a public library environment.
If you think we have filtered an appropriate site, or should filter an inappropriate site, tell library staff or email email@example.com
If you are concerned about accidentally finding inappropriate sites, we recommend that you use those which we have reviewed on the cyberLibrary.
The cyberLibrary contains links to hundreds of websites reviewed and evaluated by library staff.
We offer access to web based email such as Gmail or YahooMail. More web based email providers can be found on the cyberLibrary.
All our computers allow you to adjust the size of the text on the screen.
Each library has at least one height adjustable desk and trackball mice are available in all libraries.
