Stepping Up

Computer Training


Needs some help with our library eResources? Check out our online tutorials



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

Throughout the year we schedule drop-in sessions when you can bring along your laptop, phone, tablet or other questions relating to digital skills.  Our librarians will spend time working with you to help you understand and learn what you need to know, or book you in for some follow-up sessions.

The best way to find out what we are currently offering, is to look at our events calendar. To register talk to one of our staff or click on one of the links below:

Matamata Classes Drop-in sessions usually held on Wednesdays from 9.30am
Morrinsville Classes Drop-in sessions usually held on Tuesdays from 10.30am
Te Aroha Classes Drop-in sessions usually held on Wednesdays from 10.00am



If these classes don’t meet your needs and the time needed is longer than a standard 5 minute enquiry, you may request to spend one on one time with library staff via our ‘Book a Librarian’ service, In this 15 minute session, we can guide you on the topic you need, such as using the library app, downloading eBooks, basic guidance on computer or device use, or general library help such as finding information or books. You can book 2 sessions in a six month period. Phone or email us and we will work on finding a time that suits both you and our team.
