Free online digital skills courses
Access free online digital skills courses, including introductory lessons for people who have never used the internet or who need to learn basic computer skills. They are available at our UK Online Centres, part of a network of over 6000 centres across the country helping to get people online. If you’ve never used a mouse before, or want to understand online banking or social media, this is perfect for you.
These libraries are all UK Online Centres. They offer free access to Online Basics courses, with support from library staff during set times. Some libraries suspend UK Online sessions during the summer holidays, so please check with us if you need support.
