Computers And Technology

Using our Computers (during Covid-19)

Library members must agree to abide by our Acceptable Use Policy, and guest users must show valid proof of name and address and complete and sign a Computer & Internet Users Agreement form when arriving for a booking. Children and young people under the age of 16 must have their form counter-signed by a parent or guardian. All of these are in the document section of this page.

Booking a Computer

It is essential that you book in advance to use a computer or our photocopying facilities. Adult library members can book online or by phoning the library. If you are not a library member, please join online before making your booking, or phone the library to discuss your options. Bookings for children and young people under 16 must be made over the phone.

To keep both computer users and library staff safe, we kindly ask that you:

  • Wait at the library entrance prior to your booking, where a member of staff will provide you with instructions for a COVID-safe visit
  • Wear a face covering when moving around the library and practice excellent hand hygiene
  • Provide your contact details for the Scottish Government’s Test & Protect contact tracing system
  • Come alone if you can. If you need to bring someone with you (for example, a carer or dependant), please book two computers or call the library for assistance
  • Read and adhere to our COVID-19 Code of Conduct at all times
  • Understand that personalised IT help may not be possible at this time
