Computer sessions for free

FREE help sessions for wannabe computer whizzkids are being held in Hartlepool this week.

Central Library, in York Road, Hartlepool, is running the IT taster sessions on Thursday, May 17, between 10am-5.30pm, for those who have little or no computer knowledge.

Library officer Sue Graham said she wants people to drop by and see how easy it is to get started.

She said: “So much of our modern life involves the internet or emails - everything from buying goods and services to communicating with friends or even applying for jobs.

“These short sessions are aimed at IT beginners and will cover the basics such as getting online or creating email addresses.”

The sessions last between 15 and 30 minutes. People can either drop in or book a place in advance by calling the library on (01429) 242909.
