Digital skills opportunities
Learn computer skills in your local library.
Do you want to learn how to use a computer, just brush up your skills or need to use a computer but don't have access to one?
Your local library can help. Did you know that you can book a one to one training session at your local library? Sessions are flexible and the support is tailored to your personal needs. You can also book time on a computer with access to the Internet.
