Navigating new technology doesn't come easy for a lot of people, but help is often just a click away.
MidCoast Libraries, along with telco, Optus a free tech-help session will be held at Hallidays Point library from this Monday, July 15.
The joint initiative is about supporting people to stay connected and get the most out of their device.
It's a great program for anyone needing a helping hand with their smartphone, tablet or computer, with local experts available every Monday (excluding public holidays) to help better understand the technology they have, MidCoast Libraries manager, Chris Jones said.
"Technology is moving at a rapid rate and it's easy to feel like you're getting left behind," Mr Jones said.
