The Learning Centre

A Community Learning Space

Located in the upstairs mezzanine at the Paraparaumu Library, the Learning Centre is a quiet place to gather, study and participate in technology learning opportunities. You are welcome to use the space for quiet study if there are no classes running.

The Digital Services Team offers hands-on technology courses that utilize the 10 PCs in the Learning Centre.

  • Stepping Up is a free series of two hour 'steps' for people with little or no computer experience. Choose the modules best suited to your needs and interests. Bookings are essential. Courses are on at Paraparaumu, Otaki and Waikanae Libraries. Please let us know if there are courses you or someone you know might be interested in.
  • Self-Publishing Workshops are offered periodically for community members wishing to become self-published authors. 
  • Minecraft After-school Clubs are offered each term for children 9-15 years of age. Registration will open at least two weeks prior to the start of the school term.
