'Get Connected' at Waddesdon Community Library

Feel out of touch? Would you like to brush up your computer skills?

Get Connected is an award winning project taking place at Waddesdon Community Library. It is a social enterprise combining basic computer skills and conversation. Participants receive 6 one to one sessions tailored to your needs and ability. These sessions are run by our sixth form and KS4 students who will guide you through the Learn My Way website, and help you with any problems you may be having when using your device. You do not have to own a tablet, PC or laptop to take part in these sessions, we have everything you may need at the library.

Once you have completed the sessions, you will become a graduate, and will have access to the Graduate Club. This is an optional drop-in group where you can continue your learning with peers in a sociable setting. The students and librarian will also be on hand to offer support where needed.

Did we mention there is tea, coffee and biscuits available at every session? And that Get Connected is completely free?!

Since the project began in February, 9 members of the community have benefitted from the Get Connected project. Please see photos and feedback to this if this is something you’d like to be interested.

To sign yourself or someone else up, please come to Waddesdon Community Library on a Monday evening 5.30-8pm (during term time), email us at or call us on 01296 651 382.

Secret Cinema

You don’t even have to leave the village to spend an evening at the cinema. Once a month we run a “Secret Cinema” night where members can view new and classic films for free! (Although a small donation to keep the library flourishing is always welcome.) So far this year we have shown The Lady in the Van, Florence Foster Jenkins and Dad’s Army. Please see the school diary or contact the Library to see when the next Secret Cinema night is!
