Nottingham City Libraries are working with Connected Nottinghamshire to tackle the digital divide in our area. Having the digital skills, knowledge, confidence and ability to use technology can mean better access to information and care, increased convenience and more opportunities for greater control of your own health, care and wellbeing. However, many of us who could most benefit from digital services are the least likely to be online. 

That’s why a Digital Support Hub will be available at Nottingham Central Library.  In a community space where people can learn how to use digital devices through informal learning, have access to digital devices and guidance from volunteers to help people improve their digital skills and confidence, so they can engage with online services.
