Learn to use a computer and learn more computer sessions
Visit your local library and discover ways to get online and learn more about becoming digitally active.
All Dorset Council libraries are registered Online Centres and support learning to use the computer and the internet through Learn My Way. You can access this site on your own using the free library computers or at home.
All libraries can offer initial digital assistance at any time by facilitating access to relevant courses via Learn My Way or signposting to other venues running IT help sessions in the local area.
