Whether it’s accessing a PC, booking online or simply printing, scanning or copying, we’ve made it easier for our members and visitors by introducing a new system called Monitor. We’ve also upgraded our hardware to give you more options!

Monitor provides a cashless solution to pay for printing, copying, fines and services, both online and in our branches. Your Library card is now even more valuable as you can add credit to it using our self-serve kiosks or online, then simply scan your library card at the photocopier!  

Members will now be able to send print jobs from home or on the go using our online MyMonitor portal and pick them up from any branch. You can also print from your own device through our high speed free WiFi available at all of our branches.  

Need to make sure there is a computer available when you come in? You can now book online, including our new Mac desktops! Simply go to Book a Computer on our website or app and login to your MyMonitor account through the portal. 

To access any of these great features, manage your account, add credit and check your balances you need to set up a MyMonitor account with your Library Membership card and PIN. To set up your account go to our online MyMonitor portal.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Your library PIN is set to 1234 as default until you choose to change it. We recommend all members change their PIN, to change your PIN go to our online catalogue, log in and go to the 'My Account' section to change your PIN. Can't log in? Use the 'Forgot PIN' option to reset your PIN or ask our friendly staff for help online, over the phone or in your local branch!
