Reserving a Computer

You may reserve an Internet computer before your visit to the Library online, by telephone 519-661-4600, or in person. When you arrive to use the computer, look for the terminal with the reserved sign on it.

How to reserve a computer
  • To complete a booking, you must have a PIN number already added to your library account. PIN numbers must be assigned in person at any circulation desk.
  • You must also have logged into a library computer at least once before making a reservation.
  • You may make a reservation at any catalogue or public workstation, reserve online on our web site or ask staff for assistance.
  • You can reserve up to 4 reservations over a 14 day period. As one is used, the counter drops back to 3.
  • Reservations are made on the ¼ hour (:00, :15, :30, :45) only, depending on availability.
  • You should arrive before your scheduled reservation.
  • Use only the machine that is reserved for you.
  • If a reservation is cancelled, another may be made in its place until the maximum of 4 is reached.
  • If reservations are missed, 10 minutes is docked from your daily time limit of 90 minutes, but another reservation can be made.
