In the best interests of community health and well-being, and in line with social distancing measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19, our Technology Workshops sessions have been cancelled until further notice. It is the intention of Council to continue these sessions once it is safe to do so as advised by NSW Health Department guidelines.

Tech Connect - Express

Book online or drop in for a free 20 minute one-on-one computer assistance session with Woollahra Libraries volunteers.

You may bring in your own devices or use the library computers depending on what you would like to learn.

To guide us and to help you get the most out of these sessions, please come prepared with either specific questions you would like to ask, or an idea of what you would like to learn about (e.g. email, ebay, downloading an eBook).

Tech at Ascham

Tech at Ascham (previously know as 'Easy PC') is a free, weekly digital technology training program which runs for 5-7 weeks, offering personalised learning for people aged 55+.

The next course runs in Term 1. We ask participants to commit to all sessions to take full advantage of the program and to minimise disruption to students.

Parking is available at Edgecliff Centre, 287-295 New South Head Rd. There is no parking onsite.

Tuition is provided on a one-on-one basis by high school students under teacher supervision. The program offers participants an introduction to computer skills or digital skills development. Schools offer use of computers, or you can bring your own device (such as; laptops, tablets, phones).
