Technology Tutoring

A library employee helps a patron learn a new skill on a computer during a Tech Tutoring session

Technology Tutoring sessions are for all levels of computer users and offer a chance to sit down with a staff member for 30 minutes of free computer assistance. Laptops are available for use and the sessions take place in a quiet area of the library. Whether you’d like help mastering the job search, downloading ebooks and audiobooks, or refreshing your basic computer skills, our half-hour tutoring sessions might be the place to turn. You name the topic and we’ll work together on one of PPL’s laptops, or you can bring your own device.

Here are some examples of tutoring topics that PPL offers through this program:

  • Basic Computer Skills
  • Basics of the Microsoft Office Suite
  • Downloading ebooks or audiobooks via CloudLibrary
  • How to use tablets and smartphones
  • Navigating the Cloud
  • How to place reserves on library items
  • Troubleshooting technology issues

Advance registration is required. You can register in person at the Reference Desk at the Downtown Library or by visiting the Lending Desk at your local branch library.
