Seniors can attend monthly two-hour TechShare sessions at the new 3,000 sqm library@harbourfront at level 3 of VivoCity shopping mall. These sessions are opportunities to interact with the latest technology such as mobile apps, gadgets and virtual reality, in the company of their peers.

There are also three-hour TechClinics (S.T.A.R. (Seniors Tech and Read)) for seniors. These clinics have two components namely Tech Assist and Read Assist. Tech Assist covers enquiries on access and use of the library’s e-Resources, while Read Assist offers support to seniors in reading library materials. It is a monthly programme, and seniors can walk-in to join the session. All these sessions are part of the over 500 programmes being offered across this year by the library to patrons of all ages. To find out more on the various programmes, go HERE.
