More than 75 per cent of Australia’s 1,500 libraries participate in the eSmart libraries program, an initiative of the Alannah and Madeline Foundation. The program has received $8 million in funding from the Telstra Foundation and is supported by the Australian Public Library Alliance.

Since the launch of the program in 2012, participating libraries have introduced the concept of online safety to thousands of Australians of all ages every year, providing them with the skills they need to safely and responsibly use digital technology.
