Computers & Internet Access

Due to health and safety concerns associated with COVID-19, limited public computers are available at some WMRL branches. WIFI is available at all of our branches if you are able to bring your own device.

The WMRL is pleased to offer free public computer use, with the following parameters:

  • Each patron is entitled to up to a half-hour (30 minutes) of free computer use daily
  • Patrons who have active library memberships may log into the public computers using their barcodes and PINs
  • Patrons who do not have active library memberships may obtain a temporary barcode from a Library staff member. These patrons are still restricted to one hour of computer use per day and must provide their name and a piece of documentation that corroborates their identity in order to gain computer access. This documentation does not need to be government-issued ID.

Resources on the computers in the Library include:

  • Internet Access
  • Word Processing
  • Library Databases
  • Printing is available. There is a per copy charge.
Computers can be booked up to one week in advance by contacting the Library. Free Wifi is also available in all Western Manitoba Regional Library branches during operating hours.  
Please check with staff for connection details.
