CELEBRATE SENIORS WEEK AT YOUR LIBRARY

WITH everything from how to become tech savvy to author talks on the latest best seller, Sunshine Coast Council libraries are the place to be during Seniors Week from August 15 to 23.

"Seniors Week is an opportunity for people of all ages to take a moment to recognise the valuable contribution seniors make to the Sunshine Coast," a spokesman said.

"There will be morning teas, tech tutorials, author talks and Wii Play sessions for seniors and more.

"Seniors can stay better connected with their families and friends across the world by becoming tech savvy and learning how to use technology such as an iPad or how to download eBooks.
