Liverpool Plains Shire Council (LPSC) libraries have announced a new program for Seniors that want to learn about technology and how to use their devices beginning this Tuesday.

Recognising that technology can be daunting, but also increasingly, a necessary part of life, Council is creating a safe space for the local community to ask questions and practice in a ‘hands-on’ way.  

The program, ‘Afternoon Tech’, begins on June 6 at both Werris Creek and Quirindi Libraries.  Anyone interested in attending this free event can drop into their local library from 2.30pm to 4.00pm for complimentary tea and coffee and a light afternoon tea.  While there, chat with staff and each other about their device, and or pose technology related questions.  

For the first get-together, the topic will be smartphones.  This will help participants to learn more about using their smartphone, and the capabilities of a smartphone.

“This is a fantastic initiative that will benefit our community enormously when it comes to embracing technology and reaping the benefits of it. The get-togethers are also a wonderful way for people to network and make new friendships,” said LPSC Mayor Doug Hawkins.  

The Afternoon Tech Program will continue to be held on the first Tuesday of each month, at both Quirindi and Werris Creek libraries, with a new topic selected each month.
