The Margaret River Library is hosting a free community lunch to celebrate Get Online Week at 12pm on Thursday 17 October 2019.

The lunch is aimed at residents aged over 50 years old, and provides an opportunity for participants to view demonstrations of online resources, and to hear about the Libraries’ digital literacy program.

Library Technician Jodie Porter said the lunch will be a fun, social and interactive event.

“The internet is such an important tool for staying informed, aware and engaged,” she said.

“It’s a means of keeping up to date with friends, family, news and events and for accessing essential information and services.

“Participating online as we age helps us to stay connected, engaged, independent and self-sufficient.”

Ms Porter said the lunch event will include demonstrations of how to access digital resources, and all booked attendees will be given a take-home gift of a USB storage device, pre-loaded with helpful links to encourage people to get online.

Places at the free event are limited and bookings are essential. Gluten-free and vegan dishes will be available.

To book a place, RSVP to amrlibrary@amrshire.wa.gov.au with your name and phone number, or call 9780 5600, or drop into your local library branch.

The lunch is supported by a grant from the Federal Government Be Connected, as administered by the Good Things Foundation.
