Tech Help appointments
The Jonathan Bourne Public Library is pleased to offer our patrons Tech Help appointments. They are one-on-one technology appointments with the library staff’s Information Systems Librarian. These trainings are designed to help familiarize patrons with common computer and internet functions in order to encourage digital literacy in our community.

Tech Help appointments can cover the following:
  •        Basic computer skills
  •        OverDrive and Commonwealth eBook collection for free eBooks and Audiobooks
  •        Library resources such as online databases, Zinio, Hoopla, Freegal, Mango, etc.
  •        Email/Internet basics
  •        Social media
  •        Office productivity software (e.g. word processing, spreadsheets, presentations)
  •        Usage of patron owned devices such as eReaders, tablets, and smartphones
  •        Basic computer troubleshooting
  •        Other computer or technology-related questions
Tech Help appointments policies are as follows:
  •       Appointments can be between 10-15 minutes depending on the topic.
  •       Patrons can book 2 appointments per month.
  •       Appointments are made based on your preferred time and staff availability.
  •       Library staff cannot be held responsible for damage to patron-owned equipment.
