Libraries… more than just books!

Among the many things you can do at the library that you might not be aware of is take a short course on using computers.

The classes are aimed at people with little or no experience of using a computer or the internet. They offer one-to-one introductions to computing and cover everything from the basics of using a keyboard and mouse, to the internet, email and word processing.

Cllr Allan Witherick said “It’s positive opportunities like this which show why libraries are important in today’s society, and also why it’s so frustrating that the Conservatives saw fit to reduce the hours, making them less inclusive.”

The taster sessions take place in most libraries across the county and cost £5. There is no charge for library members who have a disability or who are on low incomes and receive benefits. For further details and to book a place on a course you can try:
