Computers in Birmingham Libraries

Welcome to the pages about computers in Birmingham Libraries. We hope you find the information helpful.

A Computer booking system (Netloan) is in operation for booking time on library computers in Central and community libraries. To book a computer online in advance you need your library card and PIN.

If you have full membership of the library, your allowance is 6 hours a week. For temporary members, the allowance is 2 hours a week.

Adults can make 2 hour bookings, with further time after a 20 minute break. Children under 16 can book up to 2 hours a day. Bookings can be made up to 7 days in advance.

Please note. If you arrive late, time is deducted from your session and if you arrive 10 minutes late your session is cancelled.
