Get Online Reading is all about providing easy-to-access sessions for anyone who needs help to get online.
Our regular drop-in sessions are on the first floor of Reading’s Central Library, Abbey Square (corner of King’s Road), Reading RG1 3BQ. Sessions are on Tuesdays 2.00-4.00pm, Thursdays 2.00-4.00pm and Saturdays 10.00am-12.00pm.
Just turn up and ask for us at the first floor reception desk, or look for a volunteer on the first floor with a purple ‘I can help with IT’ badge.
We now hold weekly drop-in sessions at Battle Library, 420 Oxford Road (next to Tesco), Reading RG30 1EE. Sessions are on Fridays 10.00am-12.00pm – just turn up and ask for us at the reception desk. We are also supporting sessions at Tilehurst Library on the fourth Monday of the month 2.00-4.00pm (please call 0118 937 5112 for details) and at Whitley Library on the third Thursday of the month 2.00-4.00pm (please call in advance to register on 0118 937 5115)
The main area for recent expansion of the project has been Whitley and Whitley Wood – we now have regular sessions on alternate Tuesdays at the Three Cooks at Cintra Park and the Whitley Community Cafe, and a monthly Wednesday morning session at the Whitley Wood Community Centre. Please see the calendar for details.
We are talking to other partner organisations, and hope to roll out sessions in more locations around Reading in the coming months. Here is the full calendar of our forthcoming events – there is also a printable calendar:
