tablet helps you discover digital world
The internet is so easy to use these days anyone can learn how to master it – no matter how old they are

If the only tablet you’re familiar with is one you take with water, and you think browsing is something you do at the shops, then you should consider the Campbelltown City Library Services free computer and information technology (IT) sessions starting next Wednesday, January 20.

Council’s “IT & Biscuits’’ workshops aim to give residents a basic understanding of computers and how they work, as well as a hands-on guide to emailing, searching the internet, and mastering Facebook and Skype.

There are also workshops on how to use smart phones, laptops and tablets.

Most importantly, the workshops are relaxed and friendly, and tailored for beginners.

Tea, coffee and biscuits are also provided!

Mayor of Campbelltown, Cr Paul Hawker, said council wanted to support more seniors to embrace information technology.

“The internet can open up all sorts of new possibilities and make life easier – from communicating with friends and family, to searching for information, managing finances and even shopping,” Cr Hawker said.

“We hope the workshops will give residents the confidence to make the most of the digital world by connecting with the people they care about, and pursuing hobbies and interests online.

“We want to help seniors to get connected, with the aim of reducing social isolation and increasing access to information and services,” Cr Hawker said.

Courses are scheduled throughout the year – contact any Campbelltown City library branch or call 4645 4444 to secure your place.

Bookings are essential as places are limited.
