Free computer classes back at Hutt City Libraries

Hutt City Libraries’ free Stepping Up programme is back by popular demand and this time round there are more classes for absolute beginners.

The beginners’ computer classes are designed for Hutt City residents with basic, or no computer skills. People who’ve taken the course report that they feel confident on the computer now and no longer feel dumb when their kids are talking to them about things online.

Based on feedback from last year’s course the organisers are offering more ‘Computer Basics’ courses in 2014, which teach people who’ve never touched a computer.

Bookings for term one classes open on Tuesday 4 February, and classes startMonday 10 February. Stepping Up is offered at War Memorial Library, Wainuiomata Library, Naenae Library, Taita Library and Stokes Valley Library.

The free classes are a partnership between Hutt City Libraries and 2020 Communications Trust.

Election Day: Make Sure You're A Part Of It!

Saturday 20 September, is election day, and New Zealanders’ last chance to have a say on who leads the country for the next three years.

“The people and parties we elect tomorrow will be making the decisions that affect us, our families and our communities,” says Robert Peden, Chief Electoral Officer. “It doesn’t get much more important than that, and we need all New Zealanders to use their voice and vote.”

Voting places will be open from 9.00am until 7.00pm on election day. The busiest time at voting places is usually 9.00am - 11.00am.

“Take your EasyVote card with you when you go to vote, as it will make voting faster and easier, and vote close to home if you can. But don’t worry if you forget your card, or didn’t receive one, because as long as you are enrolled to vote, your voice will be heard,” says Mr Peden. More>>
