We emphasize developing basic digital skills with not only laptops, but tablets and other mobile devices. Training is also available for library services like Overdrive eBooks, Zinio digital magazines, Consumer Reports and other databases and how to effectively use the Library’s new Enterprise online catalog. This program is aimed at educating users rather than computer repair.
Please register in advance through our online event calendar, calling or by visiting the library. Registration is very important so that our volunteers can prepare for your questions.
Lastly, if you cannot attend a session please call the library at 734-475-8732 x 503 and leave a message, we would appreciate it.
