Tech train­ing of­fered for se­niors at Liver­pool li­braries

The Queens County Advance - - OP-ED - Eric Pot­tie

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.
