Computer classesDo you want to get online but can't use a computer? Southsea Library is an UK Online Centre and we are offering free courses to help you get started and improve your confidence. Working through Learn My Way courses on the Internet, you can take your first steps with computers and the Internet and learn at your own pace with support from friendly staff.
It's so important to be able to use the Internet; you can save money, keep in touch with family and friends, find a job, swap your council house and make your life a lot easier.
We run 3 different sessions: Monday or Tuesday, from 2pm to 4pm and Saturday, 9.30am to 11.30am. If you are interested in having a go, please call Pat Garrett on 07960091722.
