A programme of upgrading and improving the public access technology facilities in all libraries in Denbighshire has started.

The work began on Saturday, November 20, and is anticipated to take 6-8 weeks to complete.

The project will see new public access computers installed, a new PC management system, self-service printing, an online booking system and printing via Wi-Fi.

Each week one or two libraries will be upgraded and during that week, customers will not be able to access computers or printing at that particular library.

Customers will be informed by staff and notices at each library and via social media, and advised to consider visiting another library to use the computers there.

Cllr Tony Thomas, Denbighshire County Council’s Lead Member for Housing and Communities, said: “This upgrade will really benefit our library customers and provide a better service for those who use our public access technology facilities.

“Our libraries provide a wide range of services for our residents including free access to books, free downloadable books and newspapers, free computer internet and Wi-Fi access, and a shared space for community activity.

“We apologise for any inconvenience caused to customers during these improvements and thank them for their patience during this time.”

The programme started at Rhyl Library and will roll out across the county in the coming weeks.

Customers are advised to check with their local library before making a special journey to use the library computers or printing.

The free public Wi-Fi will remain available during this time.
