Facebook logo It seems that everybody is on Facebook nowadays.

In addition to socialising online with your friends, Facebook can be a very effective vehicle to keep in regular contact with your business’s customers or members of your community group.

You can use your Facebook page to promote products and events, attract a new clientele and build relationships and goodwill with your existing customer or membership base.

If you are you interested in starting a Facebook Page for your business or community group, this free session will teach you the steps involved in creating a Facebook page and how to market to your audience.

Perhaps you have questions you want answered such as:

¨ Can I assign someone else to help manage my page?

¨ What is the best strategy to grow my page?

¨ Should I pay Facebook to advertise my business or community group?

Then this is the course for you!  Bookings are essential and can be made online.  Or telephone 8397 7333.

WiFi access in the Library- new and improved!

Tea Tree Gully Library has recently upgraded its public WiFi network to simplify and upgrade access for users.

Now it’s easier than ever to access the new wireless network.  Whether you bring in your own laptop, tablet or smartphone into the Library to connect to the network, all you need to connect and log on to the network is your Library card from any SA public library and your pin.

You’ll then be asked to accept a simplified version of the Terms and Conditions of Use. You will also have direct access to browse the Library catalogue.

There are new WiFi handouts in the Library to guide you through the changes and staff can always provide assistance if needed.

Full instructions are available on the Library website.

Plus, users now have a 200MB download quota per WiFi session – a significant increase from the former 70MB quota. Yay for more browsing time and for being able to upload more content!
