Some Westminster residents who rely on getting access to computers and the internet at our libraries. To help, the council has been making computers available in special areas at Victoria and Church Street libraries.

The computers are available from Monday to Friday, 10am to 4pm, and residents can use them for up to 45 minutes. Each computer and work station is carefully cleaned after each customer and there is a 2 metre distance between desks. Staff are on hand to help with IT queries and to ensure that safe social distancing is observed at all times including queuing when demand is high. Find out more here.
