Internet, Wifi and Email


Dunedin Public Libraries provides free computing and Internet access via the Aotearoa People’s Network Kaharoa (APNK) and GigCity.

Free wifi access is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, at all Libraries. Outside Library opening hours, access is around the Library buildings. We have two public wifi networks: GigCity free WiFi (limited to 2 GBs per day)  and APNK which is a secure network.

The Gighub at the City Library offers a range of devices for you to use that are linked to the internet.

APNK desktop PCs are available for customer use and have a range of software installed: Microsoft Word, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Skype, Adobe Acrobat reader and other programs. Each APNK PC has a DVD and CD drive, USB ports, memory card slots and a webcam. Use of the computers is on a first come, first served basis. Sessions are 30 minutes each, and at busy times a limit of two sessions per day may apply.

Please ask at a desk for help to book.

Black and white, A4 printing is available from these PCs and wifi at a cost of 20 cents per double-sided page.
