Council libraries staff will be showing residents how to register online to pay for parking by telephone – among other handy IT skills.
Some machines will remain, and payment can also be made in certain shops bearing the PayPoint logo. Older phones as well as smartphones can be used to pay.
From now until April 20, library staff are offering citizens help with their own digital devices. Anyone can come along with their own mobile phones, ipads and laptops to get help using them.
Tips available also cover texting, using the internet, getting an email address or using Facebook – as well as PayByPhone.
The drop in sessions will be held at the following times and places
- Jubilee Library, April 20 to 26, 10am-1pm
- New Larchwood Café in Coldean (opposite Coldean Library) Monday 20 April, 2pm-3.30pm
- Saltdean Library, Friday April 25, 2pm-5pm
Brighton and Hove Library Service also need IT volunteers with knowledge of how to use the internet, Windows 7, Excel and Office, Facebook and Twitter, iPads and smartphones.
Anyone with these skills who can offer three hours or more every week at one of our libraries across the city should email email@example.com.
