310 Aucklanders trespassed from libraries between Jan 2016 and Feb 2020

Stabbing staff with scissors, masturbating, being drunk and having sex are just some of the reasons why 310 people were booted and banned from Auckland Council libraries in the last four years.

The majority of the trespasses were for threatening behaviour (51), abusive behaviour (41), theft (33), graffiti tagging (14) and intoxication (nine).

Five people were trespassed from several libraries for multiple offences or where serious types of offending posed significant risk to staff at other sites. Three people were banned from all libraries for offences listed in the article below.

Despite this, an Auckland Council spokeswoman said its libraries were safe and welcoming for Aucklanders wanting to connect, read and learn, and trespass notices were issued in "rare and isolated cases, with no evident patterns". Library staff were trained in conflict awareness.

We’ve been privileged to help Kiwis get the essentials needed to work, study, and stay connected. It’s led to huge demand and some orders are taking longer to deliver. We’d really like to apologise to the customers who’ve experienced these delays.

To help get it sorted faster we’ve quadrupled our Customer Care team, and expanded our order fulfilment network so we can get thousands more orders delivered each day. Plus our remote Tech Solutions service will be free until May 11 to lend customers a hand with technology advice or setting up.

Thanks for your patience, everyone. We’re getting there.

Basic Technology Course for Seniors (1st Lesson Free then $20)

Gavin from Browns Bay

As an IT Program Manager, encountering so many diverse technologies can be overwhelming but as one learns to take one step at a time, a person becomes used to the new technology and we then embrace its benefits and become a real fan for what it can do.

In my social group I am in regular contact with those older than myself who are bright, engaging and active. However when it comes to their iPad, tablet, laptop or smartphone these devices can seem very overwhelming and a sense of pain crosses over their eyes as these devices hold so much promise for them but can be such a massive wall to climb just to do the basics.

So I would like to offer an 8-week basic tech course to help Mom and Dad or Grandma and Grandpa to grasp the basics of their own technology. The idea of these classes is for each one to bring to class their preferred technology (smartphone/tablet/laptop) and then to step through the basics of how it works, what it needs to be connected to and what Apps or software is needed.

The course designed by myself is to understand how to use your own technology comfortably and the various applications such as Skype, email, WhatsApp, Zoom, FaceTime, the internet and office explorer files and more.

The first day of the course is an overview and the journey we will take together. This first day is free for you to decide if this is something you would like to take on over the next 8 weeks with no obligation. This course will commence on the basis if there is sufficient interest in our community to do so.

I am based in Browns Bay and training will take place in a comfortable homely environment in a classroom style set up to optimise training. Notes will be provided of each session to take home.

This course will run weekly and is $20 a lesson and anyone can stop and join at any time. As mentioned above the first lesson is free. There is no need to pay for a full course only pay for the day you attend. Once you have completed the course in full, you will be presented with a certificate of completion of Technology - The Basics. A nice to have if you want to venture to start working again.

This will run during the day on a weekly basis for 1.15mins. If you are interested or would like to sign up a relative, contact me on email: Gavin.tipping@outlook.com
