Nitro-Type: will you be the class champion of 2014?

Bored of the school holidays? Yes!
Is your laptop up and running? Yes!
Then it is time to try out Nitro-Type, and get those typing skills up to speed before the school year starts!

BUT...what if you don't have internet access at home.... perhaps you can ask Mum or Dad or an Older sibling to take you to the library, where the internet access is...FREE! 

Palmerston North City Library

The core purpose of our Library is to inspire people to explore the pathways to the world – Te Ara Whanui o Te Ao.
One of the ways we aim to do this is to provide community access to a variety of information resources including the Internet.
Conditions of Use:
  • The Library wishes to provide a secure environment for the public to explore the resources of the Internet.
  • Children’s use of the Internet is the responsibility of their parent, guardian or caregiver.
  • The Library offers computers that can be used to access the Internet; some with Microsoft Office suite programs such as Word and Excel.
    Staff can assist with technical problems but are not always available to offer support in teaching inexperienced users.
  • We advise booking a tutorial time or calling ahead to ensure that a staff member will be available.
Computers are free to use for Palmerston North City Library Card holders without excessive fees and fines, however some charges may apply to non-members.
Palmerston North City Council maintains the rights to monitor Internet traffic and email on its public access computers.
The Library may deny computer access in the event of unacceptable use of our computer facilities, such as:
  • Damage to equipment
  • Use of library computer facilities for illegal or criminal purposes
  • Display or propagation of objectionable language or material
  • Violating the privacy of individual users on the Internet by reading their e-mail or other private communications
  • Harassment of other users
  • Using e-mail, anonymous or otherwise, to send threatening messages
  • Introducing viruses and other types of malicious programs into the library computer network
