Man using a computer in a library

Free Internet access and free Wi-Fi is available in all Clare Libraries branches.

Free Internet Access

All Clare Libraries branches have free Internet Access available via our public computers. Each computer has the Open Office suite installed.  Use Open Office for word processing, presentations and spreadsheets. Open Office is free to download and use and has many of the same features as Microsoft Office.

  • Use your library card number and PIN to log on to the computers via the PC Reservation System.
  • If you are not a member you need to sign in at the library desk, showing proof of ID and address.
  • Sessions are for 60 minutes and limited to one session per day. Staff can extend your time if the service is not busy.
  • You must abide by the library’s Internet Access Policy
  • Children under 18 years of age need permission from a parent or guardian to use the Internet. This will be recorded on their library account.
  • Computers cannot be pre-booked so there may be a short wait at busy times for a computer to become free.

Free Wi-Fi

Free Wi-Fi is available in all our library branches.

To use the Wi-Fi, connect to Clare Library Card Login from your device. You will receive a prompt to login with your library card number and PIN.  You have unlimited Wi-Fi access when you are a library member.
