Laptops available for use at Kyogle library

Kyogle library members can now “borrow” a laptop computer for use in the library.

The new service is open to members who are 16 years of age and older and you don’t even have to bother the library staff.

The laptops can be borrowed from a self-service kiosk using your library card.

Kyogle Mayor Cr Danielle Mulholland said the new service would give people with no or limited access to technology the opportunity to use the laptops for a range of activities.

The self-service laptop kiosk features six laptops which charge when the laptops are not in use. Community members can simply swipe their library cards and remove the laptop for use.

“The kiosk then effectively books out the laptop (similar to borrowing books) under your name,” Cr Mulholland said.

“It is such a quick, efficient system and I hope it is a resource that will be well utilised.”
