Daunted by the internet? Muddled by the mouse? Knaresborough Library and Customer Service Centre is expanding the amount of training it offers to help local people learn to use computers and get online.
From November, there will be a monthly, two hour beginners’ computer training session for people who have no experience of using a computer. This session is a brief introduction to the mouse and keyboard and the basics of using a PC.
In addition there will also be an “introduction to the internet” course which will run for two hours, once a fortnight. These sessions are aimed at people who have experience of using a mouse and a keyboard and no experience of the internet, or who have attended a beginner’s computer session and would like to learn more.
For those people who prefer the personal touch people can also book a one to one session with a volunteer to help them to brush up their computer skills and get help with specific problem.
County Councillor Chris Metcalfe, Executive Member for Adult and Community Services said:
Learning to use a computer can be very daunting; however the staff at our libraries are delighted to help everyone to learn this new skill. Most of our libraries have computers with up to 30 minutes free internet access per day, so they are great places to learn and to continue to develop skills.
