Computer Access

Most of our Libraries have printing, photocopying and scanning facilities. To check your local Library please click here. 

The council uses filtering software to block access to websites that could be judged to be inappropriate.  However, the filtering software is not infallible and can sometimes block sites that may not be inappropriate. If this happens a form will appear online where you can request to have the block removed.

Acceptable Use Policy

Do you need help using a computer?

Do you want to learn how to use a computer?  Are you curious about the Internet?  Why not book a one-to-one session with one of our Digital Champions?  The sessions are free of charge and you can attend as a one-off or for a few weeks. Find out more about our Digital Champions.
