Libraries Week and Get Online Week

Libraries Week is an annual celebration of libraries. In 2019 we are celebrating the role of libraries in the digital world and exploring how libraries are:

  • engaging communities through technology
  • building digital skills and confidence
  • encouraging digital participation and inclusion
  • supporting health, wellbeing and education
  • supporting local business and enterprise

Get Online Week helps to make sure that everyone can take part in the digital world and make the most from being online.

We're here to help you from learning how to send an email to experiencing virtual reality.
