A safe and accessible city

We’re improving self-service computers and printers in our facilities

New mobile devices, better accessibility and more printing options are part of the upgrade.

We’re improving the public computer services in our libraries, community centres, early education and outside school hours care centres.

You’ll have access to the latest technology including enhanced wifi, greater accessibility features, increased printing capabilities and more mobile devices.

We'll increase our devices by 38% to 312, which will include new mobile equipment such as laptops and tablets. They’ll be available to use in meeting rooms or private spaces upon request.

Our self-service computers remain free for library members at our library branches and all visitors to our community centres.

New laptops in our education and care services will enable children to engage with technology in a more flexible way.

Library members will be able to login to a public access library computer more easily by scanning their membership card barcode. Members can also use credit on their card to print.

Users will also have more payment options for printing and copying including an online portal and new payment kiosks in our community centres. The kiosks in libraries can continue to be used for payment.

We’ll do our best to minimise disruption. Services may be unavailable at each facility for 1 to 2 days during the upgrade period.

For those who bring their own devices wifi upgrades will largely be completed outside of business hours.

Darling Square Library and makerspace, and Redfern Community Centre received the new technology in late July.

Upgrades at all our other centres and branches will soon be confirmed.

Our team will be available to help members and visitors use the new computers and printing facilities.
