Computer Assistance @ the library: 

Sometimes you may have a specific issue that is preventing you from proceeding with your work. The library staff is available to help you on a limited basis.

You may sign up for an appointment for computer assistance at the checkout counter. You will be contacted to arrange a time to meet for a 30-minute help session at the library during business hours.


The library also offers basic computer instruction on a variety of topics based on patrons’ interest. Let us know what kind of instruction you need. When there is sufficient interest we will do our best to find an instructor and offer a class. If you are interested in more comprehensive training or an in-depth class, let us know. There are online courses available through our website or we can help you find classes in the area.
