Learning at your library

Libraries closed on Friday 28 September

All Thurrock libraries will be closed on Friday 28 September so staff can receive training. You will still be able to order or renew books and other items online. We apologise for any inconvenience.

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.
