Get Online Week 2022

Library 19 September 2022

The City’s libraries will be participating in the national initiative Get Online Week, running from 17-23 October 2022. 

Come along to a series of free events running at South Perth and Manning libraries.

Get Online Week is a campaign organised by Good Things Foundation aiming to close the digital divide.

1 in 4 Australians are digitally excluded (ADII, 2021). Less than 40% of Aussies are confident that they can keep up with the rapid pace of tech changes (ADII, 2020). For people more at risk of digital exclusion, such as older people, people with disability, low income families and First Nations people, this rate is even higher.

Being digitally included means having affordable access to the internet and the skills and confidence to use it safely. If the last two years have taught us anything, it's how vital this is for work, school, staying connected with loved ones, and for our health and wellbeing. Read more about Get Online Week
