Important: if you want to use a computer at any of our libraries during COVID-19 you must book in advance.
To comply with social distancing requirements, we have had to reduce the number of computers usually available and limit the use to one hour per day.
The following time slots are available during our reduced opening hours. Bookings can be made up to 7 days in advance - see how to book.
|Library||Opening hours||Computer time slots|
|Monday to Saturday, 10am to 4pm|
|Monday to Friday, 10am to 4pm|
|These libraries are currently closed||-|
Call us at 020 8489 2700, Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm.
Choose your preferred library and time slot via our new booking system MyPC.
We have created a short instructional video tutorial on using MyPC that all users are encouraged to watch:
Important: We are aware the online booking system is not completely accessible for all users, and we are working to fix these issues. If you have problems using the system, then you can always book via phone at 020 8489 2700.
We are not currently able to provide individual support to help you use computers.
Printing is available at all of our libraries, as well as scanning documents and photocopying. You will need a library card which you need to activate first on the printing devices.
If you have supplied an email at registration, you can also use our new email to print facility without the need of using one of the public computers and securely collect your prints at any branch.
To use the email to print, simply attach your file and send from your registered email to:
- Black and white print: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Colour printing: email@example.com
Please ensure you have enough credit on your account before sending to print. An email will be sent back to confirm when files are ready to be collected. You will need to swipe your card, so please make sure you have it with you when you collect your print files.
You can speak to a member of staff if you need further guidance.
