Tech training offered for seniors at Liverpool libraries
I am very happy to write this week about a temporary position we have filled at South Shore Public Libraries.
Through a grant from the Community Technology Network Nova Scotia, we have hired a senior tech trainer. Her name is Holly Snook and she will be working with us until May 9.
Snook will be in Liverpool on Tuesdays and offering one hour, one-on-one tech help appointments in both the morning and afternoon. This is a great chance to come in and have someone help you with tech related problems you may be experiencing. To book an appointment, please call the library at 902-354-5270.
She will also be offering a variety of technology classes each week at 1 p.m. These include borrowing ebooks with Libby on April 17, tablet basics on April 24, a tour of virtual reality on May 1, and how to explore Ancestry on May 8. We do encourage participants to register by calling the branch, but you can also drop in if you’d like.
We are very excited about this opportunity that expands our program offerings and helps our community.
