eSmart Internet Safety


City of Wanneroo Library Services, in January 2016, became the first library service in Western Australia to achieve eSmart status. eSmart Libraries is a partnership between the Alannah and Madeline Foundation and Telstra Foundation and is one of the most significant community cybersafety initiatives ever undertaken in Australia. It is a behaviour change initiative for cybersafety and wellbeing designed to equip and connect library users with the skills they need for smart, safe and responsible use of technology. Being eSmart means knowing how to guard against security and privacy risks online, download content in a legal and ethical way, research and reference information, as well as manage reputation and relationships in cyberspace.

Office of the eSafety Commissioner

The Office is committed to helping young people have safe, positive experiences online and encouraging behavioural change, where a generation of Australian children act responsibly online—just as they would offline.


The ThinkUknow website is administered by the Australian Federal Police and provides cybersafety information, advice and tools for youth, parents, carers and teachers.

The Broadband for Seniors Online Lessons allow you to work entirely on your own at your own speed and in your own environment; you just need Internet, for example your own home computer, your grandchildren’s computer, a friend’s computer, or a library computer. It’s easy to jump from place to place in the lessons to remind yourself of something you may have forgotten.

Before using the Online Lessons you will first need to create a free ‘User Account’ by clicking on Online Lessons website. This free User Account will let you start, stop and replay any of the Online Lessons whenever you feel like it and from the exact point you stopped on your last lesson.
