Technology and Training

We offer a wide range of free technology services, with offerings changing as the technology changes.


Training is available during the summer months and in select libraries during the winter. Our training consists of one-on-one scheduled appointments, usually tailored to your specific needs and skills. We also offer training in mobile technologies such as iPads and Android operating systems. To learn more or book an appointment, please contact your nearest branch library.  

Public Access Computers

These computers have Windows 7 operating systems and are available in all branch libraries. All are connected to the Internet. Common software applications include Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Office, Libre Office, etc. Computers can be booked in advance (in person or by telephone) or by chance.  Headsets and USB flash drives can also be used, so bring them along.


All library locations have free 24 hour high speed wireless available, both inside and adjacent to the building (where possible).


Colour and black/white (greyscale) printing is available in all locations. Scanning is available in all locations.

Other Technologies

We also have many other types of technology available for those with specific needs, for example Daisy players for those with print disabilities.
