The library’s program of technology workshops have commenced for 2018.
Sessions are held twice monthly and are designed to assist members of the community with technology, in an easy to understand and practical way. Sessions cover a variety of topics from email basics to how to best utilise Google apps.
These sessions are designed to help people to access information, utilise essential services that are increasingly going ‘online’ and also to stay connected with family and friends through technology.
The program for 2018 is expanded from previous years with an increased range of training topics reflecting continual advancements in technologies and their use in the community.
Bookings are essential and can be made by contacting the library on 6801 4510.
The library supports these workshops with a large collection of technology focused books and guides, whether it’s learning the features on the latest iPad or keeping up to date with Windows, there is something for everyone. Interactive online tutorials are also available and can be accessed anytime, anywhere from the online library website.
