Computers and Wi-Fi
All our libraries have computers with internet access and Wi-Fi available for free for all library members. You will need your library card and PIN.
You can book a computer when you arrive at the library or in advance by calling 020 8303 7777.
Computers and Wi-Fi are switched off 15 minutes before the library closes.
Our computers run on Windows 10 and have the following software available:
- Internet access via Google Chrome, Safari or Internet Explorer
- Microsoft Office 2016 Pro, including Word, Excel and PowerPoint
- Adobe Acrobat PDF reader

Every branch has at least one fast, high resolution document scanner. Please speak to a member of staff if you would like to book onto a PC with a scanner.
In order to comply with security and data regulations, all documents saved to PCs in libraries will be deleted after a session has finished. All files and documents you wish to keep should be saved to a USB flash drive or online service before logging off.
Before using the internet or Wi-Fi in our libraries you must accept our Acceptable Use Policy.
Printing facilities are available at all Bexley libraries, where you can print in black and white or colour. You can print in A4 at all our libraries and in A3 at most of our libraries.
Customers using their own tablets, smartphones and devices to connect to the free Wi-Fi in the library can also use the printing facilities. Please note there is some extra set-up required with Windows and Android devices that can take approximately 10 minutes. If you would like to print via Wi-Fi, we recommend that you set this up in advance. It only needs to be done once on each device.
