Free Digital Skills Workshops
All digital workshops have been cancelled during level 2 and above. Please check back in level 1.
We are offering one on one versions of our tech and genealogy classes, social distanced and masked. If you need a session please book. Limit one person per class.
Napier Libraries, in partnership with Stepping Up: Digital Skills for Life and Digital Inclusion Alliance Aotearoa, have put together a range of free digital skills workshops for the community.
These workshops cover a selection of topics including smartphones, eBooks and internet banking, how to access free movies using Kanopy, reading newspapers & magazines online, keeping safe online, and using video calls and messaging apps to keep connected with friends and family. These topics vary term to term. If you book into a class but then cannot attend, please contact us so that we can offer your place to someone on the waiting list.
Many of the classes are repeated. If you attend more than one session with the same name you will be going over the same information.
