Social media training on offer across Hertfordshire libraries

A HANDS-ON guide to using social media websites will be available at libraries from September.

Training in popular social media sites Facebook and Twitter will be offered across Hertfordshire’s libraries, alongside one-to-one training sessions in basic computing.

The new course called Introduction to Social Networking: Facebook and Twitter is the latest addition to a menu of taster session courses aimed at people with little or no experience of using a computer.

The social media course teaches how to set up and use a Facebook account safely and securely, including adding friends and sharing photos.

Chris Hayward, cabinet member for libraries, said: “It’s really important to have basic computer skills these days, and social media websites provide a great way to keep in touch with friends and family.”

The taster sessions are taking place in most libraries and cost �5.

There is no charge for library members who have a disability or who are on low incomes and receive benefits.
