Free internet at Ipswich libraries
IPSWICH residents wanting internet access can use it free at any of the city’s three library branches.
Tourism and Libraries Committee chairman Councillor David Pahlke said internet access was free to library members at the Ipswich, Redbank Plains and Redbank Plaza libraries and mobile library.
“Residents who are members can use their library card to access the free service, however to ensure everyone has equitable access to the internet, there is a limit of 60 minutes per day per user,” Cr Pahlke said.
“We have a limited number of machines at our libraries, and as they are so popular, it’s important that everyone is given equal access.
“Library Members can access the internet for free, whilst visitors are charged $2.10 for each 30 minutes of use, also with a maximum of 60 minutes use per day.
“To become a Library member, applicants must show identifica- tion such as a current driver’s licence, health care card, pension card or rates notice which shows their name and current address.”
Black and white printing fees of 15 cents per copy for Library members and 25 cents per page for visitors apply for people wanting to print information from their Internet session.
