Edinburgh’s Social Media Surgeries are back!
Would you like some help and advice on social media and the web? Come along to McDonald Road Library next Monday evening (21st January) any time between 5.30 and 7.30pm and get the heads up from the experts.
We are sorry that there are intermittent faults with our public internet service.
Our service providers are investigating the causes of these problems. Thank you for your patience while we work to get this fixed.
“Thank you for opening the door to a new world – I have resisted becoming involved with computing but this was done in such an understandable way that I am greatly encouraged and now want to keep learning more”
“Excellent course and just right for a terrified beginner like me. Full marks to the libraries for doing something like this and to the staff and volunteers who made it so enjoyable”
“Great course! I am now regularly e-mailing my family in Australia, it’s wonderful”
We are carrying out essential maintenance work on library systems between 8am and 3pm on Wednesday 28th March.
This will affect the online catalogue and Library2go ebooks and audiobooks.
Self service kiosks and internet access in libraries will also be affected.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
Due to unforseen circumstances Stockbridge Library currently has no telephone or network communication. Apologies for any inconvenience, we will update you when the issue has been rectified.
From next week we will be carrying out some work to improve the performance of the libraries’ Peoples’ Network computers. This means there may be no internet access in some libraries for up to two weeks.
There will be no internet access in any location from 14th – 16th November. Internet access will be restored to libraries on a rolling basis thereafter. Wifi will also be affected.
We need to carry out this work in order to increase bandwidth and speed up the performance of these machines. This will improve response times for logging in and internet page loading.
Just a wee reminder that Edinburgh City Libraries are holding a demonstration of the Life in Great Britain online resource tomorrow between 3.30-5pm at McDonald Road Library, 2 McDonald Road, Edinburgh, EH7 4LU. Come along and find out how you can access this free resource from work, home or the library.
Due to essential maintenance, public access PCs are not currently available in our libraries. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and would like to reassure library users that we are working to restore access as quickly as possible.
