Learning at your library

Coronavirus (COVID-19) – libraries

Go to our coronavirus (COVID-19) safety page for information on visiting re-opened libraries. Items due for return between 1 January and 31 July have had their loan dates extended automatically – to 1 September for libraries that reopened in July, and to 2 November for other libraries. Please do not put borrowed items in library book drops or letterboxes.

Beginners computer sessions

Our free Wiser4IT sessions are ideal for anyone who wants to learn how to use a computer.

This 5-week course is ideal for the over 50s but anyone can apply to take part.

The 5 sessions cover:

  • using a mouse and getting started on a computer
  • exploring the internet
  • sending and replying to emails
  • typing simple documents and word processing
  • adding pictures and clip art to documents

The sessions last 2 hours with a break for refreshments. They are very informal and people learn at their own pace.

There is a waiting list to join these sessions.

Contact your local library to book a place.
