Digital Taster Sessions

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.

Please pre-book
You must book your free place for these courses online through the Adult Learning portal, otherwise we cannot guarantee a place for you.

Getting online at the library

I don't have a computer

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.

I'm not a member of the library

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.

Want to use a tablet instead?

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.

I have my own device I want to learn to use

We also have free public Wi-Fi, so you can bring along your own computers, tablets, and smartphones to use too!

Digital Triage Tool

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.
