A series of events to help the older generation discover more about the benefits of being online is taking place in Middlesbrough’s libraries.
The free drop-in sessions are being held as part of Age UK’s ‘iTea and Biscuits Week’ which runs from Monday, September 19 to Saturday, September 24.
They cover how to use the internet and email, how to save money online, pay bills and find out useful information.
‘Making life easier on the internet’ sessions run from 10am to noon at the Rainbow (September 19), Acklam (September 20), Hemlington (September 22) and Marton (September 23) libraries.
‘How to Save Money Online’ sessions run from 10.30am at Grove Hill (September 19), Central (September 20) and Easterside (September 22) libraries.
And email and web browsing sessions run from 10am to noon at Berwick Hills (September 21) and North Ormesby (September 23) libraries.
iTea and Biscuits Week is a national campaign which aims to get older people to use IT in their daily lives.
All sessions will feed into the national Race Online 2012 campaign aiming to get the entire nation online by 2012.
