Computer Confidence

Not as confident navigating a computer as you would like to be?  No problem!  Come into the Library to get the skills you need to be successful.  The Library Lab Technicians, Carole and Bev, are available during the Library’s hours to help show you how to do the tasks that you have not mastered yet.  Feel free to come in at anytime, no appointment is necessary.  However, one-on-one instruction time is more available in the afternoons and evenings Monday-Thursday.  Let us help you succeed!
