For community managed libraries, please see the opening times.

Coronavirus update

From Wednesday 2 December, the libraries listed above will be open for the use of a limited number of library computers. Due to Covid19 restrictions and the need to maintain social distancing between users, customers will be limited to one hour per day at specific times and will be allocated a specific computer to use. 

Computers should be booked in advance (booking available from Monday 30 November) by phoning or e-mailing the library direct. Details are on each library’s webpage.

Please use the direct number for the library so that local staff can allocated a time slot for arrival and not the Call Centre number.

Please inform the member of staff of your library membership number and PIN when making the booking 

Customers are advised that

  • Printing will be available but needs to be done within the hour

  • There will be no staff or IT buddy assistance at a computer for reasons of social distancing

  • They should bring details of their library membership number and PIN

  • There will very limited work space for the use of personal devices (using the library Wifi) or to study; therefore use of this space will also need to be booked in advance by contacting the library direct (as above). Please be aware that some libraries will not be able to offer work space (for personal devices/study) at this time.

  • We are unable to offer the previous online booking service or a drop-in service for the foreseeable future

  • Customers’ log-on details could be used to inform NHS Test and Trace. 

First-time users

If you're not yet a library member, join online now or visit a library to get started.

You'll also need to read and sign the Conditions of Use (75 KB) and return to your local library. Please also read our guidance if you are a parent, carer or young person. 

Book a computer in advance

Our computer booking process has changed slightly due to Covid-19 restrictions. Please see our update page for further information.

Help and support with using computers

If you're just starting out, there are many ways we can help.

  • We stock computer books for beginners

  • Staffordshire Adult and Community Learning Service run beginner and follow-on computer classes in many libraries

  • Some libraries can put you in touch with an IT buddy - a library volunteer who can provide you with support in using computers. Please see the page about your library and contact them for further information.

  • From time to time, we also offer activities such as digital photography and sessions on researching your local and family history online

  • If you are blind or partially sighted, we have large print keyboards and software that can magnify print, read webpages aloud and allow you to choose a colour scheme to suit you.

  • There are printing and scanning facilities in all libraries with a  small charge for anything that you want to print.
