The Internet doesn't care how old you are
|Zanne, APNK user at Te Kauwhata Library|
Last week one of our trusty Technical Support Analysts, Bevan, took a trip to the Waikato to install a GO-GO PC reservation system at Ngaruawahia Library. While in the area he made a visit to Te Kauwhata Library and while there he met a charming lady named Zanne.
Zanne is a regular visitor to Te Kauwhata Library. She travels by mobility scooter and is a little frail so the library staff go the extra mile and help her to a chair.
Zanne is 92 years old. She's also a regular user of the free APNK computers at the library which she uses to Skype her son who lives in the United States.
So if a senior citizen you know is reluctant to engage with computers or technology, maybe remind them that the Internet doesn't care how old you are. And that if a 92 year-old can become a regular Skype user, maybe age isn't the barrier we sometimes think it is?
