Library service backs campaign to help you get online




People across Lincolnshire are being encouraged to find out how the internet can change their lives, as part of the national Be Online campaign.

Libraries across the county are joining in the campaign this month, and will be showing how getting online can make everyone’s life quicker, easier and better.

An estimated 5.9 million people in the UK have never been online, and 12.6 million don’t have the digital skills to make the most of the opportunities the internet has to offer.

At Stamford Library, half-hour drop in sessions will be held on Wednesday between 10am and midday; and 1pm and 4pm, covering basic internet, e-mail and online shopping as required.

The Be Online campaign is managed by Tinder Foundation, which aims to make good things happen through digital technology.
