Support For Computer Users At South Shields Library
Throughout March computer users at South Shields Reference Library have the option to get one-to-one tuition and assistance from a dedicated Information Computer Technology support tutor.
This project aims to offer free, informal and friendly advice to either first time or experienced computer users, every Wednesday and Thursday between 10am and 2pm.
Tutor, Jacqui Walters, is able to offer expert advice covering subjects like setting up an e-mail account, getting the best from surfing the Internet, using a scanner and much more besides.
Ideal for beginners, Jacqui can help get people to get started with computers and explore the masses of information out there on the World Wide Web. Users can also get advice and support with finding a computer course to suit their individual needs.
You do not need to make an appointment but you do need to be a Library member, just call in and enquire at the reference desk in the Central Library, Prince Georg Square.
The computer equipment at the library is part of the People's Network operated by South Tyneside Council's Libraries Service and this project is provided in partnership with South Tyneside's Adult & Community Learning team and UK-ONLINE.
Anyone using this service can register for free with UK-ONLINE which gives access to supported drop-in facilities and courses such as CLAIT at the UK-ONLINE Centre at Ocean Road Community Association.
