Get Online Week

This year, Get Online Week is 15-21 October and is saying: “See how it feels when you Try 1 Thing”.

We're marking Get Online Week with events at many of our libraries, aiming to give everyone the chance to make the most of the internet, no matter how confident they are online.  Try using the internet to do just one thing you’d normally do in a shop or bank, in a doctor’s or chemist, or even over the phone.

We are offering friendly support for anyone who wants to start doing a bit more online - and it’s absolutely free.

Our free events are listed below, but there may be more things happening near you - visit the Get Online Week website to find out more.
