Learning Learning


Welcome to Kingston Libraries learning page. From the navigation bar on the left hand side you can access information on Learning in Libraries, Jobseeking and Independent Learning. 


If you are interested in taking a computer class at the library we have many different courses on offer. Silver Surfer classes for the over 50's, 1-1 tablet sessions and Job Clubs are just some of the sessions we run. Click on the Learning in Libraries link to find out more information. 


Kingston libraries run Job Clubs at Hook and New Malden libraries every week and a fortnightly run session at Kingson library. You do not have to be referred from the Job Centre and we can help you with tasks such as creating a CV and cover letter. Head over to the Jobseeking page for more information. 


If you would like to learn independently Kingston libraries have created a page with a number of resourses to help you. Links to free and distance learning are avalaible on the independet learning page. 



If you would like to book on to one of our courses please enquire at your local branch or contact us on

Computer use in some branches is very popular so you are advised to book. Members can use the kiosks in branches to book a time slot or can ask a member of staff for assistance.  If you are not a library member you will need to provide proof of ID.  The first hour is free, after which there is a charge.

If you are under 16 your parent or guardian will be asked to complete and sign a form giving you permission to access the internet unaccompanied. If this permission is granted, a note to show this will be added to your membership card.
