In 2024, we’re encouraging people to Do More in ‘24 – we want to help you get online, access training and teach yourself the skills you need to use any technology, whenever you need to.
We’ve partnered up with East Riding Adult Learning and Employability to bring your learning right to your doorstep. Have a look below to see what’s on offer!
Would you rather learn digital skills in person rather than through our online user guides? Join us for our digital taster sessions.
Adult Learning and Employability have worked with us to organise some digital learning sessions in our Library and Customer Service Centres. These range from being tailored towards complete beginners, to courses for learners with some knowledge already.
A weekly drop-in for one-to-one basic digital help and support from designated library staff in every East Riding Library. Use our free library computers, or bring in your own tablet or smartphone and use our free unlimited Wi-Fi.
Prefer to give it a go yourself? We have fantastic online resources to support you in your learning journey.
Free courses on using a computer, browsing the web, sending an email and finding work online. Easy bite-size learning, with interactive step-by-step lessons in a variety of online tasks to help you grow your confidence and knowledge. Improve your digital skills for free or sign up to be a champion and help others get online.
Digital Unite helps organisations train digital champions to help get people online. The website features more than 400 award-winning how-to guides for a range of digital topics. These guides are free to download and use and can help from computer basics and using Office programmes, to Data Protection and GDPR, smartphones and music and TV streaming.
East Riding Adult Learning and Employability are offering you the chance to try something new, completely for free!
There are a huge range of free taster courses available to book now in East Riding adult learning centres, from English and Numeracy to Photography and Scriptwriting.
Need to get online but don’t have a computer or internet at home? We’re here to help! All our branch libraries have computers that you can use, completely free of charge. You just need to sign in with your library card.
No card? No problem: you can join East Riding Libraries for free or sign in as a guest and read the acceptable use policy every time you visit. Under 16s can use computers and hublets with parent or carer’s permission.
You can also access one of our Hublets – a self-service, loanable tablet that allows you to access eBooks, magazines, movies, menus and more, from the comfort of your local library.
We also have free public Wi-Fi, so you can bring along your own computers, tablets, and smartphones to use too!
Our Digital Triage Tool will ask you 8 specific questions, the answers of which will enable the system to recommend the nearest place that you can go to access help to get online or improve your digital skills. Our staff members will be able to help you through this simple process and assist you in finding the correct help for you.
