Connect and Communicate

Next date: Thursday, 19 May 2022 | 05:00 AM to Thursday, 19 May 2022 | 05:00 PM


Due to popular demand, the Connect and Communicate program has been extended!

Connect and Communicate will help you develop technology skills for socialising, accessing important services, and staying safe online.

You can sign up for one hour one-on-one sessions at Footscray Library, or group sessions at Braybrook and Maribyrnong libraries.

The program will help you:

  • keep in touch with family and friends
  • access government, health and other essential services
  • learn about how to buy online safely
  • meet new people!

Presented in partnership with Lively, a not-for-profit organisation that brings young and older people together to share skills and learn from each other. The young Lively Helpers provide technology help in a friendly and relaxed environment.

Bookings are essential. To secure a spot you must speak with a library staff member by phoning:
