Library computers and wifi

All our libraries have computers with internet access. You can also use our wifi on your own device with your library card and PIN number.

It's free to use the computers and wifi if you are a library member. If you are under 16 you need permission from a parent or carer to use the internet.

If you owe over £5 (including children) of fines or charges you cannot use the computers or wifi.

Book a computer

You can book a computer when you arrive at the library or book in advance to make sure a computer is available when you need it.

Or contact your local library before you visit.

If you don't live in Kent you can get a guest pass to use the computers by showing ID at the reception desk.

You can use the computer for up to 1 hour. If you need more time please ask a member of staff at the start of your session.

Computers are switched off 15 minutes before the library closes.
