Next TECH night is August 19 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Third Wednesday Tech night at the library
Wed, August 19, is the Library's Third Wednesday Tech night. If you have questions regarding technology or your device, no matter how basic, this is a good time to come to the library and be paired up with a tech enthusiast who has knowledge specific to your needs. The event runs from 6PM until 8PM, in the library. No question or need is too low, though more advanced needs are considered as well.
Issues that have been addressed in the past include:
How do I download an ebook?
My computer won't start.
I want to learn how to surf the internet.
How do I attach a photo to my email for my grandchildren?
How to I turn my phone on and off?
How do I read an ebook on my iPad?
What is an iPad?
I'm trying to pay my bills online. (Review bank account, credit card statement, etc, etc.)
And many, many, more.
Any need you have regarding tech, this is your opportunity.
We look forward to seeing you!
