Spring Online is an award-winning campaign which helps thousands of people
learn about and use computers, the internet and other modern technology.
This year, the campaign runs from April 22-26, when free digital taster
events will be held across the UK. Events take place in a wide variety of
venues and are run by volunteers, individuals and organisations passionate
about digital technology and keen to make a difference in their communities.
Cllr Craig Middle, Rhondda Cynon Taf Cabinet Member for Social Justice,
said: "If you have been thinking of learning more about the latest
technology available at our libraries, now's the time to do it - as our
staff will be on hand to help you during Spring Online week.
"Digital inclusion is important as it keeps people's minds active,
allows them to stay in touch with friends and family and to make new friends,
either online or whilst at the library and it can help combat the problem
of social isolation. Getting as many people online as possible is vitally
important, as it will help them access a wide range of information and take
the fear out of using computers.
"There's something for every member of the family all year round at
Rhondda Cynon Taf libraries, from books and e-books to free internet access
and family history resources, as well as free activities for children, audio
and large print books. So why not pop in to your local branch and find out
Membership of all Rhondda Cynon Taf's libraries is free and everyone living
or working within the county borough is welcome to join.
