The libraries provide a variety of printing and copying services.
An upgrade to the public computers at Rangiora, Kaiapoi and Oxford Libraries has been rolled out. Google Chromebooks are computers which are fast, easy to use, and designed for use with the internet. Along with replacing the computers, we also have new printers, scanners and a revamped booking system. Library staff are happy to assist while you become accustomed to the new equipment – please just ask if you need help.
Free computer services and internet access are provided via the AotearoaPeople'sNetworkKaharoa (APNK).
APNK PCs have USB ports, memory card slots and webcams. Headphones are available on request or you can use your own.
The computer booking system provides 30 minute sessions
