Computer Technology Help
The Library's Computer Coach volunteer assistance program will be reinstituted sometime in 2023.
Occasionally outside groups, such as Peak to Peak High School's student-led Connect Digital Inclusion Labs, are on hand to provide one-on-one Tech Help.
Computer Lab staff are able to offer some assistance, as time and other duties permit.
- Staff and volunteers can help with: Downloading ebooks, assisting patrons on their personal laptops, library computers, library scanner, and copier; answering questions about basic software and internet searches, and using email and social media.
- Staff and volunteers: Fix hardware or printers, design PowerPoint presentations, websites, or blogs; offer extensive computer tutoring, etc.
