Activity booklets are also available at both library branches to entertain you with puzzles, word slueths and more and don’t forget to check out the Summer Reading Club website for lots more competitions, book raves and blogs.

We are eSmart!

We are excited to announce that the Augusta and Margaret River Libraries are now officially accredited eSmart Libraries!

eSmart is an initiative of Telstra and the Alannah and Madeline Foundation, aimed at encouraging participation online while promoting safe, smart and responsible online behaviour.

Over the past year, we’ve reviewed many of our procedures, ranging from updating our Code of Conduct to include digital behaviour, to ensuring that our patrons have access to information about scams, online bullying and privacy.

We’ve added a simple link to our website so that anybody can find their way to the eSmart resources page and learn new digital skills, or find out how to keep themselves and their families safe online.

We invite all our community to visit the Library Services Online Resource page on the Shire website and click on the eSmart link. There is information that is suitable for different ages and situations, and we feel sure that it will be of benefit to anyone with questions about digital participation and safety.

The eSmart Library project will be ongoing, with further changes made as necessary to reflect the rapidly changing digital environment.

Library staff are always happy to assist the community if anybody needs help accessing digital safety information.
