Well you may not have a computer at home or your internet connection is slow to very slow.  You may be worried about using your computer, because you have no anti-virus or security programmes installed.  The library computers are fully protected and will not let you access dodgy web sites, where you may be at risk and provide you with real security whilst on-line.

What does this mean, it means that you can operate the computers in a very safe environment and not have to worry all the time that some gremlin or bad guy is going to get you, your money or personal details.

On top of that if you are unsure about any aspect of using the computers a volunteer is always on hand to help you get you going in the right direction.

Now what can you use the computers for:

* Searching for information (they are good at that).

* Booking holidays or “dirty weekends” away (you will be spoilt for choice).

* Shopping “on-line” (you will be amazed at what you can buy on the internet) find and compare  prices and get free delivery, often the next day.  If you don’t like an item, just send it back.

* Research, there is an unending amount of data stored on-line, so whether it is for work or play just get looking for the data you want.  You can copy or print files and pictures on the library’s printers or save the data to a memory stick and even email it to another computer, which ever suites your needs.

* Entertainment, if you just want to relax and enjoy a break from the mad world, you will find something on-line that will tickle your fancy.  You can always look at “You Tube” there you will be able to find out how to do almost everything, which might help you with the DIY jobs at home.

* Scanning and Printing, one of our PC's is connected to a scanner to enable you to scan a document or photo and then print it off in colour or black & white (very good for making copies of Passports, travel documents ect.).  All of the PC's are capable of printing in colour or black & white.

The list of things that you can do on a computer are endless and we will be only to happy to help you “fill your socks” with what it is you want from a few hours on our computers.

So if you would like to give it a go, just come on down to the library.  For more information on our computers and there use, just click here.
