- May 31 - King Library Opens at 1:00 PM
Library customers who want to do more with technology may want to sign up for a class, but sometimes you're just trying to accomplish a specific task (e.g., get started on e-mail, apply for a job, or find tax forms online). If you already have some experience with computers, you can search for a tutorial online--like this one for downloading eBooks--but what if you have little or no computer experience? One-on-one computer help is the answer!
Many branch libraries offer free assistance thanks to volunteer Computer Tutors. These devoted volunteers spend hours helping out at local library branches, for no financial reward. The community is strengthened and enriched, as new computer users learn how to navigate the Internet, use social media, and apply for jobs online. Willow Glen Branch Library offers one-on-one Computer Help two days a week. If you're not in the neighborhood, other branches offer one-on-one help and sometimes classes, too. Check out the SJPL Events Calendar. Select locations from the menu to only see certain branches, or simply click on the time and day that appeals to you, and you'll be connected to the event description and branch name. Call first if appointments are recommended, especially on Saturdays.
Happy learning, and don't forget to thank your volunteer!
