Stay connected with family, friends
Staying connected with loved ones is more important than ever. For many people, accessing technology and internet services can create barriers when trying to keep in touch with family and friends. The Connect Room at Dubbo Library helps members of the community connect for free. Staff will assist with everything you need to set up including creating an email address and demonstrating online meeting software. Free. Bookings required.
Drugs and alcohol
Can you separate fact from fiction when it comes to drugs and alcohol?
Test your knowledge of drugs and alcohol at the Drug and Alcohol Info Hub on display throughout July at Dubbo & Wellington Libraries. The Drug and Alcohol Info Hub is an interactive travelling display program that provides up to date and accessible information about drugs and alcohol and identifies support networks and agencies within the local community.
This informative talk takes you through some of the most common and current rip-offs, where you can go for help if it happens to you, and what steps you can take to become scam-safe. Led by solicitor D'arcy Pierce, this is a Free Community Legal Education Talk by Western NSW Community Legal Centre. Dubbo Library. Friday 30 July 10.30-11.30am. FREE. Limited seats, bookings required.
