NEW DIGITAL HUB AT AUBURN LIBRARY
Auburn Library has opened the doors to its new Digital Hub. Council is now able to provide community members with digital literacy training and practical ways to gain skills to benefit from the National Broadband Network (NBN).
Free training sessions are now being held in the Digital Hub where the community will have access to state-of-the-art equipment. Local residents will be able to attend a range of classes including: Computer and Internet Basics, Business Applications and E-commerce, and Cyber Safety. The Digital Hub also includes a separate “drop-in” centre for people to access the internet.
In addition, Lidcombe TAFE will be running an average of three group training sessions each week. It will also make one-on-one training available for those who prefer a targeted approach.
The new program introduced by the Library will help Auburn and surrounding communities take full advantage of the NBN. It will increase people’s online engagement by improving their level of confidence in accessing digital services. It will also provide key, easily accessible information on services that are currently available.
Computer classes commenced on 23 January 2013, with training calendars available in person at the Library or on the Auburn Council website. The community is invited to attend these classes free of charge, but are advised to act quick to avoid disappointment.
For further information on the NBN or Digital Hub and related training sessions, contact Auburn Library on 9735 1250.
