Computer & Internet Use

Computers for Public Use

The Sechelt Public Library has eight computers available for public use, one with a flatbed scanner, Adobe Photoshop Elements, and OCR software that can be booked for two hour sessions after an initial orientation session. 

Access

Those with Sechelt Library cards can log themselves in using the member number on their card.  Those without a library membership may ask for a guest pass at the Circulation Desk.  All computer users are entitled to one hour of free computer time.  Time extensions may be granted if others are not waiting.  Free WiFi is also available during library open hours.

The library also has laptops that can be used in the library for three-hour sessions. If you need one for longer, please speak to someone at the Circulation Desk to arrange for a longer loan period.
