This Libraries Week we're celebrating all things digital. We want to make sure that everyone has the same chances to benefit from the digital world and many of our libraries run basic IT sessions where people can learn to get online in a friendly, supportive environment.
Win regularly attends the basic IT session at the Central Library.
"Since my husband passed away three and a half years ago, the library has been invaluable to me.
I had cataracts removed and decided to start reading again to pass the time away, so I joined the library, then learned about IT classes which I attended so as not to be left too far behind with all the latest technology.
Soon after a knitting group was formed which I also took part in and altogether made several new friends where we share ideas and memories.
The staff at Central are most helpful and friendly and as an 89 year old this has been a great help in keeping me from feeling lonely. I’m sure a lot of people could benefit from getting involved."
If you know someone who needs help getting online. Our IT for beginners sessions can help get them started.
