Tech Savvy Seniors

By: | Tags: , , , , , , , , | Comments: 0

After the incredible success of the Tech Savvy Seniors program in 2016, Western Downs Libraries are proud to announce they have once again received grant funding from State Library of Queensland and Telstra to run the program in 2017.

Our Libraries will be hosting free, fun and interactive training sessions that are a great way for seniors to take the first step in becoming tech savvy. Want to learn more about Cyber Safety? Social Media? Online banking? Tech Savvy Seniors is for you! Sessions will be held in 8 great locations: Bell, Chinchilla, Dalby, Jandowae, Meandarra, Miles, Tara and Wandoan throughout October and November.

Tech Savvy Seniors provides relaxed, well-paced sessions with plenty of time to ask questions, delve deeper, and socialise with other members of the community. Contact your local branch to book in to a session (or two, or three, or stay for them all!).
