Choose your preferred library and time slot via our new booking system MyPC. Alternatively, you can also walk in without a booking.
We have created a short instructional video tutorial on using MyPC that all users are encouraged to watch:
Note for iPhone users and Youtube. There is a known bug with iOS and Youtube, Two buttons are read before the player but provide no functionality. We advise that you skip these to access the content.
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 it from your registered email to:
- Black and white print: email@example.com
- Colour printing: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please ensure you have enough credit on your account before sending files 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.
