Free workshops are being held at Eurobodalla libraries to help older residents participate in the digital world.
Funded by Telstra and run by Eurobodalla Council, Tech Savvy Seniors helps older people develop skills and build confidence in using technology.
Free workshops will be held this month at the Batemans Bay, Moruya and Narooma Libraries on 'sharing photos and other attachments online' and an 'intro to smartphones'.
The two sessions are in addition to weekly sessions at Batemans Bay Library held over the month of May.
The council's libraries manager Linda Heald said the program aimed to help older Australians use technology for socialising, accessing important services and conducting personal business.
"Tech Savvy Seniors workshops are a great opportunity to learn all the basics as well as some tips and tricks in getting online," she said.
"Because people learn on their own device it is more effective, personalised training and each session has a 22-page training guide that people get to take home."
Participants are welcome to any library session, but are asked to bring their own device.
