They say you can't teach an old dog new tricks, but the staff at Griffith City Library would have to disagree.
Every Thursday throughout the month of November, Riverina seniors can enrol themselves in one-on-one technology classes taught by students attending Marian Catholic College.
The idea was a no-brainer for event organiser Sharmaine Delgado. Ms Delgado works at the library and has given extensive credit to the technological know-how of the younger generation.
"We thought we might try something a little bit different, and with the one-on-one sessions, they can really find out what they need to know," Ms Delgado explained.
"The students are the best to help them because they use these devices all the time."
As seniors are not typically au fait with modern technology, programs such as this are key to helping them traverse the linked-in society of today.
"We have so many people coming in who need assistance with their mobile devices," Ms Delgado said.
"We thought it would be better to have devoted time to teaching them those skills."
