Internet access is available free of charge to all members of Kildare libraries. Due to the level of demand members are advised to book sessions in advance. Bookings can be made in person, or by phone.
Sessions can be booked for 50 or 20 minutes. Before each session, all users must register at the library desk with their library card.
Library computers are provided for self-learning purposes. While Library staff will be as helpful as possible, they are not in a position to provide training.
There will be a small charge for the printing of material.
Each member will be asked to read and sign a terms and conditions form before using the Internet.
Other ICT Facilities
Other ICT facilities include free public access to computers. Some branches offer self-learning software for children and adults. These include computer tutorials, language learning and encyclopaedias.
Software varies from branch to branch – contact individual branches for details.
To use this facility you must pre-book in advance by contacting the library.
Only 1 computer session per day can be booked in advance, in order to maximise PC use for all library members.
Kildare Library & Arts Services, ask users to cancel bookings in advance by phone if they know they will be unable to attend. This enables staff to make the session available for other users.
Children and Young People are allowed access to computers and the Internet provided that a parent or guardian has signed an Internet consent form on their behalf.
