Your chance to ex­pand your hori­zons on in­ter­net as li­braries run week of ses­sions

Bristol Post - - NEWS -

LI­BRARIES in North Som­er­set will be help­ing res­i­dents get the most out of the in­ter­net dur­ing Get On­line Week.

Na­tional Get On­line Week runs from Oc­to­ber 15 to 22 and asks peo­ple to ‘Try 1 Thing’ – to use the in­ter­net to do just one thing they would nor­mally do in a shop or bank, in a doc­tor’s or chemist, or even over the phone.

Events will be held in li­braries next week at which peo­ple can ac­cess free sup­port.

Sarah Bowen, com­mu­nity li­brar­ian at North Som­er­set Coun­cil, said: “Get­ting the most out of the in­ter­net doesn’t have to be scary.

“Do­ing just one new thing on­line is all peo­ple need to do to get started and we have vol­un­teers to help them do just that.”

Ses­sions at li­braries in­clude com­puter sup­port, 50 plus in­ter­net ses­sions and gad­get help.
