Libraries Use wifi or a library computer

You can go to any of our libraries to use:

  • the internet on a computer
  • wifi on your own device
  • a computer for free.

How do I book a computer?

You can reserve time on a library computer by:

  • contacting your nearest local library and reserving a place
  • going directly to your local library and reserving a place with a library assistant, or
  • booking a place the next time you are logged in to a library computer.

How much does it cost?

  • library members - one hour free per day, £1.50 per hour after that,
  • non-members - £2.00 for one hour, or
  • members who are over sixty or who are visually-impaired - two hours free per day.

It’s a good idea to book in advance. Find a local library and make your booking!

Libraries also have free wifi so you can use your own laptop or tablet.

Use a laptop

If you’re a library member you can use one of our laptop computers for free at Wythenshawe, North City (Harpurhey), and The Avenue (Blackley) libraries, see list of libraries for details.

You can use the free wifi so you’re not restricted to a fixed computer desk.

You can also use wifi printing to print direct from your laptop, phone or tablet at Central Library and Longsight, North City and Wythenshawe Forum Libraries.

Note: computer access will shut down 15 minutes before the library closes. You can still use a computer for free in and around the city.
