Seniors Week Live Life! logo

Create your own “Digital Life Memories” during
Seniors Week 2015

Seniors Week is the largest celebration for people over 60 in the southern hemisphere, and the theme this year is Be Inspired. It’s all about encouraging greater effort, enthusiasm, or creativity with a focus on creative activities that celebrate self expression.

In keeping with this theme, Kempsey Shire Libraries invite seniors to get creative, by coming along to one of three free digital workshops and learn how to create a personalised digital slide show set to music. Participants will bring along a selection of their favourite black and white or colour photographs, learn how to scan them to create digital images, then set the images to an appropriate tune.

Seniors are invited to book for the workshop that best suits them – choose from South West Rocks Library on Monday 16 March, Stuarts Point Library on Wednesday 18 March, or Kempsey Library on Friday 20 March. Each session starts at 10:30am and includes free light refreshments.

To take part in the workshops successfully, participants will need to supply their own laptop (or borrow one) and have basic computing experience. Spaces are limited so please book early to secure your spot!

Each month the Friends of the Library Kempsey group (FOLK) hold a book sale in the forecourt of Kempsey Library. The next book sale will be on Friday 27 February between 9:30am and 2pm, weather permitting.
