5 February 2013

Your Chance to Become a Tech Savvy Senior in 2013

Over two thousand senior Bayside residents have become part of the exciting world of computer technology over the past 14 years, thanks to the computer courses conducted by the Bayside Library Service.

For those older residents who want to join this band of tech savvy seniors, now is your chance with the launch of the Bayside Library Service 2013 series of short computer courses.

The computer classes are small in size (maximum 8 participants) and are specifically designed to keep people knowledgeable about new technologies such as:
• Downloading an e-audio book or an eBook from the Library.
• Using Genealogy databases. And
• Getting started with iPads
• Buying and selling on eBay.
• Using the library online databases to find information

Demonstration sessions will help people learn about their iPad, download eBooks and eAudio books and therre is also information available on emailing, on Web & Internet Explorer 8, and exploring for information on family trees.

People can join a one off computer demonstration session at a cost of just $5 or, better still, join a course of sessions that provide detailed take home notes.  Seniors and pensioner concessions are available and a further 25% discount is offered for attendance at more than one of the available courses. Fees for the comprehensive computer courses range in price depending on course preference and are available on request.

There are also courses for community members to learn how to get started with general software such as Windows, Word, Excel and Publisher.

The Bayside Library Service computer courses offer a variety of courses to suit all interests and all senior age groups as well as the opportunity to learn at a slow pace.

For more information residents should contact the Bayside Library Service on 9591 5907 or visit any Bayside Library for a brochure.
