Notebooks are available for up to 2 hours loan, for in-library use.
Available at all VPL locations except Kleinburg Library.
All libraries have workstations which provide the public with free access to the Internet. While using the Internet in each of the branches, customers are expected to read and abide by the VPL Internet Policy.
Wireless Internet Access
As long as your hardware complies to one of the standards that our wireless supports (802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g, 802.11n, 802.11ac) just open your computer or device and away you go! Available at all VPL branches.
All VPL locations provide free access to computers equipped with Microsoft Word, Excel, Publisher and Powerpoint. The workstations are provided for the public on a self-serve basis. Library staff may provide limited assistance, if time permits, but are not able to provide training on the use of PCs or the software.
In order to save their work, customers are encouraged to bring a USB drive, or purchase one from the library. Files saved to the computers' hard drives will be cleaned up after the computer session is ended or logged out.
Vaughan Public Libraries assumes no responsibility for computer viruses that may have been introduced to the workstations.
Self Check Stations
Sign out library materials by yourself with your library card. Follow the step-by-step instructions on the screen to check out or renew your materials. When you are finished, you can choose to take the receipt which includes the due-dates.

Printing, Photocopy and Scanning
Printing, photocopying, and scanning services are now available at all VPL locations.
