Computers and WiFi

Central Hawke's Bay District Libraries provide free computing and Internet access via the Aotearoa People's Network Kaharoa (APNK).

Free wifi access is also available at both the Waipawa Library and the Knowledge & Learning Hub - Te Huinga Wai, Waipukurau.20180709 computerswifi image

We use APNK Chromebook computers, which are installed with Chrome internet browser and Google Docs.

Each Chromebook has a USB port, Micro SD card slot, and a built-in webcam. We no longer supply headsets but you are welcome to bring your own.

Use of the computers is on a first come, first served basis. A limit of 30 minutes applies during busy times.
You will need to log on with your library membership number or we can issue visitors with a guest pass on sight of ID. 

Black and white or colour A4 printing is available via Chromebooks at a small cost.

When you are using library computers you should not:

  • attempt to violate our computer system security
  • remove a Chromebook from the Library
  • do anything illegal, infringe copyright or view offensive material.
  • disturb other people's use of the library

Aotearoa Peoples Network Kaharoa reserves the right to prevent access to objectionable material.
