Computers & Learning
We have computers in all of our libraries giving you access to the internet, email and Microsoft Office applications. As a library member you can book a session at any time using your library card by contacting your local library or via the link. No address? No problem, you can still borrow books and use our public access PCs – just ask staff for details.
