Free Computer Access

Free PCs

Our Library Service provides computers with free access to the internet for all. New computers and software have recently been installed in every library in Clackmannanshire as well as free wifi.

So why not get down to your local library and take advantage of all that’s on offer? Learn online, surf the net or simply email a friend - all for free.

How do I use the service?

To use the computers and wifi in our libraries you have to become a member of the service. To join:

  • Visit any of our branches.
  • Take a form of identification with you that shows your name and current address, for example a driving licence. Alternatively, take a bank statement or utilities bill along with a bank or ID card.
  • You will then be provided with a library card and can start using the service right away.

Where can I use this service?

The service is available in our libraries including Alloa, Sauchie, Tullibody, Alva and Tillicoultry.

How many computers are available?

Each library has a suite of PCs depending on the size of the library. For instance, Alloa has 19 while Alva has 6.

There are also larger monitors and special software for the visually impaired.

What does the service provide and how much does it cost?

Internet access, word processing and e-mail facilities are completely free. Scanning and CD-Rom writing facilities are included, but a small charge is made for paper print-outs and CD-Roms.

Will there be anyone to help me?

Yes. Specially trained staff are available at all times. They will act as 'human search engines'. Let them know what kind of information you are looking for and they will point you in the right direction.

Is the service only for adults?

No, it’s for everyone! Our computers provide safe on-line fun and learning for children. Children under 11 will need to be accompanied by an adult.

Do I need to book in advance?

No. Our electronic booking system allows bookings to be made at any library for any PC at any of our libraries. You may of course just visit the library. Once you have registered as a user you may book any PC which happens to be free at the time.
