LOCAL libraries are getting behind national Adult Learners' Week, which starts on Saturday with a range of bite-size events.

In response to demand, many of the events are aiming to increase people's confidence in learning to use digital and online technologies.

This includes sessions on how to set up and use email accounts at libraries in Stalham, Blofield, Great Yarmouth, Caister, Acle, Gorleston and Martham throughout the week.

Blofield and Brundall libraries are also encouraging children between seven and 11 years old to bring their techno-challenged grandparents to the library to help them conquer their confusion about the internet.

Library will be staff on hand to help during pre-booked sessions on Monday early evening at Blofield, and there will be10am sessions on Saturday at both libraries.

Booking is required for some of the events. For a full list of events and how to book, visit www.libraries.norfolk.gov.uk or call in at your local library to pick up a brochure.
