With our heavily technology influenced society at the minute, it was only going to take a little time until the silver surfer began to come about and embrace technology and become a part of this generation.
Libraries have consistently had elderly customers more so than younger people. This will differ in certain types of libraries and areas I understand, but generally the older person is the library customer.
Most elderly ladies and gentlemen nowadays really do give technology a go, some elderly people won't even touch a computer but those that visit the library- this is a daily part of their routine, if not only to use the library catalogue to find the book they're looking for, but to also surf the net. We will all have the family member or friend who's over 60 who will give the computer and internet a go which I just think is fab and so right for the 21st Century.
