Reserve a Computer

Service Update

We continue to recover from a cybersecurity incident that disrupted all library systems and technology. As a result, using the library is a little different right now. Macs and children’s computers along with printing services are currently unavailable.

The library provides public computer workstations at all 100 branches. Using your library card and PIN, reserve computer time in advance online, by phone or in a branch. Unbooked computers may be used on a drop-in basis.

Reserve a computer in advance

We've upgraded to an easier-to-use reservation system. The new system finds the next available computer. Customers have a 10-minute grace period to initiate their session before it is cancelled.

Please note:

If you need help making a reservation online, or require a specific computer, please call or go into any library branch.

More about public computers

Express computers

Looking to use a computer for 30 minutes or less? Most branches have at least one express computer available for use on a first-come, first-served basis. Library card or guest pass required.

Guest passes

No library card? No problem! Request a guest pass in person at any library branch to use a computer for up to two hours, subject to availability.

Public computer safety

We've recently upgraded our security software and systems. Each computer is automatically reset and erased after every session. We recommend bringing a USB stick for saving and managing data during your service.

Children's computers
