Libraries help improve IT skills
12:50pm Monday 29th October 2012 in News
LIBRARIES across Cheshire West and Chester have helped people improve their IT skills during a week of activities.
The annual Get Online Week is one of the largest campaigns in the country and from October 15-21 helped people between the ages of 9 to 92 improve their computer and internet skills.
Councillor Stuart Parker, executive member for culture and recreation, said: “The Library events included one hour taster sessions on how to use the internet and email, how to begin researching your family history and how to use library e-recourses for homework.”
Several people have already returned to use the PCs, which are free for library members to use, for one hour a day in any council library.
Get Online Week has also helped encourage library users to further their IT skills and there are now beginner computer courses on offer at various libraries across the borough.
