  • Printing must be done from our Public PCs — personal laptops and other devices are unable to send documents to library printers
  • You can bring your document with you on a USB drive, or use the Internet access (up to one hour free per day) on our Public PCs to access your document
  • The Microsoft Office suite, including Word and Excel, is available for opening and creating documents
  • If you're creating a document, or doing a lot of editing, we recommend you bring a USB device for saving your progress — our time limits mean you may be logged out automatically, and any changes not saved to external storage at the end of a session will be lost


All our libraries have photocopiers available.


Please note: all copying and printing is subject to copyright. It is your responsibility to ensure that your copying is legal.
