Get online in Plymouth libraries


Plymouth City Council libraries are celebrating Get Online Week (12 to 18 October) with a number of free courses showing people how the internet can help make life easier.

Total beginners can learn mouse and keyboard skills and find out how to navigate a website at the Central Library on Thursday 15 October.

Other drop-in sessions will show you how to use websites to research your family history and give tips and advice on using tablets and smartphones.

Councillor Jon Taylor, Cabinet Member for Community Services and Transformation, said: “With their free computer access and Wi-Fi, libraries are ideally placed to help people to get online. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a complete beginner or already know a little; this is your chance to find out more, with experienced staff who can answer your questions.”
