Library computers

Please read our important safety advice to help protect you when using our library computers.

Visit the Family Connect website for more information about staying safe online.


Safety advice - using library computers

As the computers in the library are used by many different people, please ensure:

  • you shut down all windows
  • delete your work from the hard drive to prevent other members of the public having access to it (however files are regularly cleared from the hard drive).

Please note: you can use your own memory sticks in the computers.


Safety advice - using the internet on library computers

  • Internet shopping
    When internet shopping, we advise you not to enter your credit or debit card details when using a shared computer. If you do so, it is at your own risk.
     
  • Illegal, offensive or inappropriate material
    Filtering software is in operation on all library computers to prevent access to websites containing illegal, offensive or inappropriate material, however, due to the rapidly changing nature of the internet it may not always be completely effective.
     
  • Dedicated computers for children
    Some larger libraries have areas with computers that are dedicated for use only by children and their families during out of school hours and a higher level of filtering software is in operation on these computers.

Please note: children's access to the internet in the library is the responsibility of the child's parent or guardian. Although we use a higher level of filtering software for children, the library service cannot monitor children's use of the internet.
