A series of free IT website and programming sessions are being held.

The sessions will be held from Tuesday, September 22, to Friday, September 25, between 9.30am and 11.30am at Whitley Bay Customer First Centre.

They are suitable for people of all ages and there is no need to have experience of coding or computer programming.

People taking part will learn to design and create websites and programs in a variety of coding languages, using popular web-based learning packages.

Sessions will be in a relaxed and informal format, following easy to use step by step guides which will take them through the process of learning computer languages in a practical, hands-on way.

A member of the libraries IT staff will be helping.

These courses are suitable for people of all ages and no experience of coding or computer programming is required, although it would be an advantage to have some experience of using the Internet.

An email address will be required to sign up to the online courses.

These sessions are free, although a library membership will be required to access the computers in the centre.

Anyone without membership can be signed up free of charge by staff on the day, as long as valid ID and proof of address is provided.

Places are limited and booking is essential.

To book please call in to the centre or phone (0191) 643 5390.
