For computer access please call 01633 647676 and give your library card number to make an appointment with your preferred library. Due to availability, sessions are currently limited to 30 minutes and can be booked up to 7 days in advance.

During this time please use the computer sessions for priority needs such as job searches, filing for unemployment benefits, email and basic printing needs.

Please do not arrive any earlier than 5 minutes before your appointment as the Library service will be operating a ‘meet and greet’ service.  Library members will be expected to use hand sanitiser on entering and leaving the building, to wear a mask and leave their details for Track and Trace. All computer workstations will be cleaned between appointments.

Please observe social distancing whilst in the libraries.
