Weekly Tech Help Appointments
Need help using your computer, smartphone, or tablet? Uncertain of where to find information about health, jobs, or that new computer program? Book a librarian for free, accessible, and helpful guidance on these and other research topics. Appointments are a half hour long. Appointments will be held virtually until such a time in person programming is safe to resume.
Request a virtual appointment via Zoom or phone and receive assistance with screen sharing or remote viewing tools. After signing up, you will receive the Zoom invite link the morning of your appointment time. You can also sign up to receive distant computer help in the Library using a library laptop and a remote viewing app. This is the most direct form of instruction as someone can control the device you're using while you receive instruction over the phone.
Sign up for a tech help appointment with the following form. Appointment availability is limited. Erik, our Adult Services Librarian, will follow up with you to schedule the next available appointment time you've requested.
