UPDATE APRIL 2020: During the period of restrictions because of Coronavirus (COVID-19) the Get Online project will be closed. In the meantime, information on getting online can be found at We hope to resume our drop-in sessions later in the year.

Do you (or does anyone you know) need help with computers? We can help you get going - from basic computer use to setting up and using email, internet searches, filling in online forms, word processing and more. We can also help with using laptops, smartphones and tablets and you are welcome to bring your own device if you have one. Free wi-fi is provided at all venues (at libraries you will need a library card). Just drop in and ask - it's free!
