Free Internet access at Community Support Frankston
Internet access is available during OPEN HOURS to people showing identification. Access on the RHS computer is in 1 hour blocks and there is 5 minute stand up access on the LHS computer to view and print email, Centrelink and bank statements.
Computer time can be booked in advance at reception, or by phoning 9783 7284. Priority access is given to those who give the receptionist their name rather than people who just walk in and sit down. This means if you do not sign in at reception first you will be asked to make way for someone who has.
Microsoft 'Word' is installed for your convenience.
B/W laser printing is available at 15c per page.
