Get Connected is [email protected] at Clarence Valley libraries

Are you, or someone you know, new to the digital world of smartphones? Does the thought of opening an email account make you nervous? Do you wonder what all this ‘Google’ business is about?

Clarence Regional Library has just released its 2020 Get Connected program, aimed at empowering Clarence Valley seniors to thrive in a digital world.

The program includes seven free courses that are fun, easy and informal.

Get Connected courses:

  • Using a smartphone
  • Using online forms
  • Using an iPad
  • Using an android tablet
  • Using a search engine
  • Using email

Get Connected courses allow people to learn at their own pace with approachable facilitators there to help every step of the way.

Grafton, Maclean, Iluka and Yamba libraries also offer free tech-help sessions for the community. Whether it’s a confusing phone function or a problem with email, Get Connected staff can usually help solve technical questions free of charge.
