Devices that can be used for school work

There are several different types of device that will allow you to work at home. Here are some of the devices that you can use for remote learning:

Mobile Phone
Tablet
Laptop / Desktop PC
Xbox
Playstation 4 / 5

All the devices above can be used for remote learning. If possible, we recommend that a child works on a laptop or computer. Whatever the device, apps can be downloaded for Teams and Office 365 or you can access these through your web browser.

If you are struggling for a device, then another option that can be used is a gaming console, such as the Xbox or PlayStation. You can also connect a wired keyboard and mouse or compatible wireless keyboard and mouse. You will be able to launch the console’s web browser and navigate to Office.com or other websites as indicated by your teacher and perform most tasks.

Getting started with Libby


The Libby app is the easiest way to get started with digital books, audiobooks and magazines from your public library.

Did you know your local library has thousands of ebooks and audiobooks?  You can borrow them, instantly, for free, using just the device in your hand. Heres how:

  1. Install the Libby app from the app store on your Android, iOS (Phone/iPad/iPod touch), or Windows 10 device.
  2. In Libby, follow the prompts to find your library and sign in with a valid library card.  Your PIN is the last 4 digits of your postcode.
  3. Browse your library's collection and borrow a title.
  4. Borrowed titles appear on your Shelf and download to the app automatically when you're on Wi-Fi so you can read them when you're offline.

    From your Shelf, you can:

    - Tap Open Book, Open AudioBook or Open Magazine to start reading or listening.
    - Tap Manage Loan to see options like Renew and Return.

    Happy Reading!

If you can't get Libby on your device, you can try using the original OverDrive app.
