Internet Sessions

We have a number of computers for public use.

The computers currently available include:

  • 12 PCs in the Library Area
  • 6 PCs in the Café area
  • 4 Kids PCs and 4 PCs in the Children's Library area.
  • 8 PCs available in the Youth area.

Sessions

All computers are available free of charge for 60 minutes a session, with each person being allowed a maximum of 2 hours per day. During school holidays this is reduced to 1 hour per day per person.

Visitors may purchase a guest pass for $2 per session. This session entitles you 2 hours of usage time within an expiry date.

Although you can simply jump on a computer if it is free, if you know you'll need to use a computer at a particular time or if you want to use it as a group, we recommend making a booking to avoid disappointment.

Free 24-hour WiFi at your library

Free WiFi is available 24-hours a day at your local library. The two WiFi network to connect are 'Public Wifi' and 'TT Special Visits'

Outside library opening hours, you can access WiFi immediately outside the library building. You don't need a password or a PIN; it's freely available to the general public, tourists and library members alike.
