eSmart libraries

Joondalup libraries are now eSmart

eSmart Libraries is one of Australia’s most significant community cyber safety initiatives, and requires that the Libraries consider cyber safety in all of our planning and programming and that we promote cyber safety to the public.

Be cyber aware – protect yourself online

  • Limit your risk of identity theft and unwanted contact – manage your social media settings to limit what others can see.
  • Cyber abuse is not okay – report image-based abuse, sextortion, cyber-bullying and threats to the platform’s administrators, who should remove it within 48 hours.
  • Teach your children to react safely to unwanted contact – don’t respond, leave the site, tell a trusted adult, report and block the person, keep the evidence.
