DIGITISE THE NATION – Free classes

Digitise the Nation is coming to Ballinamore library from Monday 28th May to Friday 1st June, to teach people internet skills and getting online.
Everything we go to do these days seems to need the internet. If you lack confidence in your skills or worry that you might do something wrong, this is the class for you. Surfing, shopping, services and selfies – all found in the course of a week and it should be good fun!
Class times are from 11.30am to 1.30pm or 2.30pm to 4.30pm depending on what the group wants.
All classes are free as they have been sponsored by the Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment.
