Our libraries are now a part of the Digital Springboard program. Digital Springboard is a collaboration between Infoxchange and Google and is designed to help people of all ages learn the digital skills they need to thrive in both work and life.
This community-based learning program addresses digital skill gaps to make sure no one is left behind in today’s increasingly digital world. Courses are run in both the Freeling and Kapunda branches. The latest course schedule can be seen on our online booking page.
