Get smart tech classes at the Grafton Library
A NEW series of technology sessions for seniors are being rolled out in Grafton.
Sir Earle Page Library and Education Centre will host five Tech Savvy Seniors workshops each Wednesday, from 10am-noon, from mid September.
Topics include introduction to computers; iPads and tablets; and basic email.
Regional librarian Kathryn Breward said the library's classes help people become more independent, gain life skills and improve decision making and communication through information literacy.
"Literacy skills can be gained through print or through technology and library staff always work to help the community, regardless of the format," Kathryn said.
Bookings are essential as places are limited to 10 people a class.
Visit the library or phone (02) 6641 0100 to secure a place.
Alternatively, dedicated staff will host informal sessions at the Sir Earle Page Library and Education Centre on the third Wednesday of the month, from 1-3pm.
Staff also visit Iluka, Yamba and Maclean libraries.
