Kate will help out with questions on your technology.  Bring your own device (laptop, tablet, smart phone, etc.) or borrow one of the library’s devices. Sometimes we learn something new from each other!

Bring your questions and your log in information with passwords, and we’ll do our best to provide the answers.

We will also have a list of helpful websites, and have helpful books available to check out. Learn about free ebooks and audiobooks, or simply how to take a picture with your phone.
