*Pay day loan company websites:  Nottingham City Council believes that pay day loans are detrimental to the health and economic wellbeing of Nottingham's citizens. The Council is supporting: stricter controls over pay day loan companies and premises; stricter regulation of advertising for pay day loan companies; and the promotion of credit unions which provide a safer loan alternative to vulnerable citizens. As a result all pay day loan company websites will be blocked and inaccessible on all Nottingham City Council computers, including public computers in libraries from Thursday 19th September 2013. For information on alternative and advice on financial services visit the Welfare Rights Service.


FREE public WiFi provided by GovWiFi is available in all Nottingham City Libraries and many other Nottingham City Council buildings. The first time you want to use GovWifi you will need to sign-up and set up your device.

When using Govwifi you must also agree to our GovWiFi Acceptable Use Policy.
