eSMART LIBRARIES

Creating safe digital hubs for kids & the community in partnership with The Alannah & Madeline Foundation

Across Australia, libraries play a key role in bridging the digital divide, by connecting communities to the online world.

eSmart Libraries is a world-leading cyber safety program designed to better equip Australia’s 1,500 public libraries with the skills they need for a smart, safe and responsible online community.

This partnership with The Alannah & Madeline Foundation is an acknowledgement of the key role libraries play to bridge the digital divide, by connecting young people and communities to the online world safely, smartly and responsibly.

Being eSmart means knowing how to guard against security and privacy risks that may arise, being able to research, download and create content that is safe, and being able to manage reputation and relationship issues associated with being online.
