Be Connected! – Learn Digital Literacy Skills at Your Local Library

Source: Lithgow City Council
Posted: 17 Jul 2019
Be Connected is an Australian government initiative that aims to increase the confidence, skills and online safety of older Australians and to empower everyone to use the internet and everyday technology to thrive in our digital world.

Your local Lithgow, Portland and Wallerawang libraries will be holding sessions on the basics of using digital devices and engaging with the internet. To further improve your knowledge you can bring your own device or use the library devices.

Mayor Ray Thompson said “People with low internet skills can often feel isolated from their community and family at a time in their lives when feeling connected is increasingly important. It is wonderful that there are opportunities at the Library to learn new skills.”

Sessions will be commencing on Monday 22 July 2019 on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday mornings in Lithgow and starting from Monday 29 July 2019 at Portland and Wallerawang Branch Libraries. Bookings are essential and can be made by contacting Lithgow Library on 6352 9100.
