LIBRARIES across Bracknell Forest are soon to see a funding boost come their way.

The council is set to spend £85,000 on improvements to technology at its public facilities.

Funding contributions from developers will see £50,000 go towards upgrading library PCs, which are still running software which is eleven years old.

A report from Bracknell Forest Council (BFC) indicated customers complained about the speed of the computers as many had difficulty loading websites and opening PDFs.

This means the council will purchase 66 new PCs to make sure library users can access computers at times when staff are not present at the sites.

Another £30,000 will be spent on eleven new printing machines which allows customers using their own devices to print from personal smartphones or laptops.

These machines will be introduced at all nine library sites across the borough.

The money was allocated to the libraries after councillor John Harrison, executive member for culture, delivery and public protection, gave the proposals the go-ahead earlier this week.
