Our libraries offer Stepping Up courses for our community to learn to use the Internet and computers/tablets/phones. The Digital Steps programme is run in our library branches by trained staff members in classes of up to 6. These classes have been prepared by the Digital Inclusion Alliance Aotearoa Trust.
