Computer accessibility

By Stuart McDonald 30 March 2012 News & events Comments off

From the Suggestion Box @ your library …

I’m really really ANNOYED that I can’t use the catalogue computers because people are using them for Facebook. Please police this issue!

Library response …

Thanks for letting us know about this problem. I can undestand how annoying this can be.

If you notify a staff member at the time you experience this issue we will be able to intervene on the spot.

I will also look at the signage around those computers to see if we can make the appropriate use of those computers clear.
