ADULTS will get the chance to sharpen their computer skills through a free program at the City of Bayswater’s libraries.

The City’s Technology Uncovered program is tailored for adults aged 50 and over.

Funded by the Federal Government’s Be Connected initiative, the program offers courses to help adults with basic computer skills, online safety, email and social media.

Deputy Mayor Filomena Piffaretti said it was essential to provide opportunities for the community to get online.

“These free courses will help participants master the basics,” she said.

“Using the internet is an essential part of our every-day lives, so we’re working to make sure it’s easy for people in our community to make the most of this in a safe and useful way.”
