Do computers and electronic devices such as e-readers intimidate you? Can you use a little help setting up e-mail or getting online to fill out a job application?
The Coeur d’Alene Public Library, 702 E. Front Ave., offers a variety of computer workshops, but now patron can also get one-on-one help Tuesdays, 2-3 p.m., in the Computer Lab on the Nonfiction side of the main floor. No reservation is necessary.
“We have patrons coming to the library all the time who need help to gain confidence using computers, tablets, and e-readers,” said Library Director Bette Ammon. “The staff at the Research and Information Desk cannot always devote as much time as they would like to help. These sessions are intended to provide the assistance people may need.”
Assistance will be provided by Circulation Clerk Angela Flock, who is also involved in teaching during the library’s full computer workshops. Drop-in sessions are made possible, in part, through a grant from the Coeur d’Alene Tribe to the Library Foundation.
The library also offers basic computer orientation in two workshops each month and additional workshops focusing on such skills as word processing, spreadsheets, desktop publishing, and using e-mail and Facebook.
Patrons who need accommodation to participate in library programs or services are asked to contact the staff prior to the activity by calling 208-769-2315.
