County of Brant Public Library will be connecting older adults to the digital world, equipping them with skills and confidence to navigate the digital landscape and explore countless opportunities for learning and growth this fall.
Digitally Savvy sessions run from September to November, covering everything from fraud prevention and online banking to podcasting and virtual reality. Workshops are hosted by skilled library staff and various community organizations, such as Brant OPP and the Brant Skills Centre, and occur at various library branches.
“Connecting older adults with technology ensures people are engaged and included in an increasingly digital society,” saidBra Laura Eadie, Program and Outreach Coordinator at the Library. “Whether learning to access essential services, discovering new hobbies, or staying in touch with loved ones, older adults will gain hands-on experience, social and intellectual stimulation, and support from skilled staff.”
