If you are over 60 and want to catch up on any technological leaps you may have missed in recent years, a series of workshops at Murray Bridge Library are for you.

The two-hour "tech-savvy seniors" sessions are held at 10am on Tuesdays and 2pm on Wednesdays.

Upcoming topics include:

  • April 24: Online safety and searching the internet
  • April 25: No session
  • May 1: Android for beginners (the system used by Samsung, Google and many other smartphones)
  • May 2: Intermediate Android
  • May 8: Using your iPhone
  • May 9: Using your Android phone
  • May 15: E-books and audiobooks
  • May 16: E-magazines

Attendees should bring their own device, library card and any App Store or Play Store passwords.

Library team leader Tim Law said the sessions were a fantastic opportunity for people to develop the skills and confidence to become more connected in our digital world.

Heather Christensen recently attended a session and said she found it easy to follow.

"I will definitely be booking in for more sessions and I thoroughly recommend anyone with an Android or other type of device to book in as well," she said.

The workshops are an initiative of Telstra and the South Australian government.
