  1. Good day. I would like to know if you offer computer lessons and if so do you also offer on weekends as well and how much if one wants to do it?

    1. Dear Emily
      Apologies for the delayed response.
      Our Public Libraries do not charge anything for programmes offered by Libraries. The library used to have laptops and a classroom but the laptops were outdated so we are trying to upgrade or find them replacement. So currently there are no organized computer lessons at the library but I will speak to the Librarian to find out if they can organize them and I will keep your details and cotnact your again once the librarian has updated us.
