Technology upgrades and temporary waiver of PC access fees

The City of Sydney is upgrading all the public access computers and printing, copying and scanning facilities in all library branches by early 2017. This cutting-edge technology will give you access to the latest Microsoft Office applications, internet browsers and Skype for video and voice calls.

Self-service kiosks are also being installed to make borrowing faster and easier. Members will be able to check their loans in and out, freeing up our librarians to spend more time helping customers with their enquiries.

Branches will close briefly at different times for the upgrades in late 2016 to early 2017.  More on upgrades and closure dates.

The temporary waiver of PC access fees for non-members ($3.50 per 30 minutes) will remain until the technology upgrade is complete. Current fees and charges for printing remain the same and will continue to incur a fee.
