Get Online Week Digital Roadshows

Get more out of life online! With the support of the Be Connected Network, we are hosting digital roadshows along with special events and activities to showcase how easy it is!

Adults over 60 years will be supported to develop their digital skills and have a go on a digital device in an informal, relaxed and social atmosphere. As well as taking place in some of our libraries, digital roadshows will travel to small townships, Senior Citizen’s Centres and Retirement Villages. 

Digital show, tell and ask

Come and play with our machines!

Bendigo Library is happy to host three afternoon sessions where you can either bring in your own device, or play with one of ours. We want to find out how our library can help you better access the digital age, show you the Be Connected online portal – and we’ll even throw in afternoon tea!

Grab a few friends and call 5449 2700 to register for one of these sessions.
