Did you receive an iPad for Christmas from your well-meaning family, but don’t know what to do with it, other than perhaps re-gift to some other poor soul? You’re not alone, the Silver Surfers tutors can help.
Come to the Chilliwack Library on Jan. 31, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. to meet one-to-one with senior tutors who are experienced in using iPads and tablets. Bring your iPad, Apple ID and any other sign in passwords you have. If you don’t yet have an Apple ID or know what that is, don’t panic, just come with your iPad. You will have approximately 20 minutes with a tutor to begin your learning adventure and the opportunity to arrange follow up sessions. There is no cost for this session.
If you are unable to attend the event at the library there are two drop-in sessions each week, free of charge. One is on Mondays (excluding stats) from 2:00-3:30 at the Seniors Veteran’s Society, 9233 Main Street, the other is on Thursdays from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Seniors Activity Centre, 9400 College Street.
The Chilliwack Learning Society has sponsored “Silver Surfers” since its inception in 2014. With a motto “it’s never too late to learn to surf”, the goal is to support social and intellectual participation of seniors in our community through the shared use of iPad technology. If you would like to learn more or become a Silver Surfers tutor and assist others discover the range of activities of iPads, please contact Kathy Ball, Program Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 604-701-9794.
