Seniors events at the MidCoast Libraries

The Libraries on the Myall Coast will run events for Seniors throughout April.


THE NSW Seniors Festival has kicked off and the MidCoast has a jam packed events program in April to help celebrate the amazing contribution of older people to our communities.

“MidCoast Libraries will roll out a series of workshops across the region to help seniors become tech-savvy during the Festival,” said MidCoast Libraries Manager, Chris Jones.

“These are a great way to connect with other like-minded people, and learn the basics to navigate your smartphone or tablet advice.”
