eSmart Libraries

The eSmart program is an initiative of the Alannah & Madeline Foundation, in partnership with the Telstra Foundation.

The Alannah & Madeline Foundation’s mission is to keep children safe from violence; eSmart was initially created to address cyber risks and help schools meet their duty of care. The eSmart Libraries program has been tailor-made and designed with libraries in mind, to help us provide our community with the skills needed to safely navigate the digital world.

The City of Melville Library service is committed to connecting library users with the skills they need for smart, safe and responsible use of technology. We aim to guide our users to get the best out of digital technology, by identifying safe cyber behaviour, as well as highlighting behaviours that can cause harm to yourself and others.

eSmart Behaviours

  • Do not share your log in details and passwords with others
  • Do not give out personal or financial details to people you have not met
  • Report any bullying, harassment or unlawful behaviour to the relevant authorities/mediators
  • Think carefully before posting content online including the sharing of photographs and videos
  • Avoid opening emails or downloading attachments from unknown senders
