Accessibility through technology: Wendover Community Library improvement project

Libraries Team, 19 October 2022 - Wendover Community Library Project

The new Wendover Library will provide much improved digital access for the community with the installation of new self-service equipment and improved printing technology for all members of the local community.

Technology at the library

The technology at the library will include:

  • Public network computers with one hour’s free usage per day for library members and employment support for jobseekers including free printing of CVs and job application forms.
  • Availability of hublets – loanable tablets which can download numerous apps and which can access online publications and resources subscribed to by the library. The device memory is completely wiped between loans.
  • Wireless printing facilities from personal devices and hublets.
  • I-Kiosk self-service, allowing users to return books and access other library services.
  • Smart whiteboards in meeting rooms to enhance the commercial offer.
  • Digital information screens providing information on a range of local services.
  • The possibility of running a ‘Library Extra’ service which allows members to access the library premises outside of the usual opening times. The picture shows the Library Extra at Amersham Library.
  • Community-based learning to improve digital skills.
