Practical information

Services available in our libraries

Digital spaces

Learn how to surf the net, create a blog, retouch photos or quite simply, learn how to use a computer … the digital spaces are open to everyone and offer numerous workshops, both one-to-one and for groups.

What is a digital space ?

The purpose of the libraries’ digital spaces is to promote the general public’s access to new technologies. Whatever your age and your level, a complete programme has been developed by our staff, either in workshops or on a one-to-one basis.

Come and get started, or improve your knowledge at your own pace in accounting and management, in IT, and even in the highway code, with the help of our teach-yourself applications.

Search engines, blogs, discovering internet content, social networks ... all will finally be within your reach !

NB : There is free internet access in all Lyon’s libraries and the entire network has wifi.
