What is a taster session?
A taster session is an informal one-to-one, usually at your local library lasting 1 hour. You’ll get an introduction on how to use a computer or tablet and a free course booklet to help you practise.
There is a concessionary charge for library members who have a disability or are on a low income and receiving benefits.
Email us about a taster session if someone you know would be interested. Or you can ask in your library.
