Knowsley Libraries offer a range of activities to older audiences across the region in a number of different library locations.
Tea & Tech: Struggling to get the best from your laptop or mobile device? Join one of our regular groups across Knowsley for support and tips from fellow users and have a cup of tea/coffee while you’re here. Maybe you have some experience that could help other group members? (It is also possible to take your smartphone, tablet or other mobile device into any branch at any time with your query. If staff are available to advise at the time, they will do their best to help).
