If this new year has you getting acquainted with new technology — or if you’re wanting to become more familiar with devices you already have — Prescott Public Library has a variety of services and resources that can help.
On Tuesdays from 10 AM to noon, our librarians can help answer your technology questions at our Drop-in Tech Help sessions. Bring your own device or laptop with you or use a library laptop if you’d prefer.
While we are not able to type your documents, fix your personal devices besides basic troubleshooting, or provide tax or legal help, we can help you learn how to navigate your device, use apps, get started with e-books and more!
For one-to-one assistance, our Book-a-Librarian service provides 30-minute sessions of one-to-one uninterrupted, personalized technology assistance with a librarian. Librarians can help with searching the internet, using basic computer software, using an email account, navigating your smartphone or tablet, and using the library’s catalog and online resources.
Prescott Public Library also hosts monthly group technology classes. These classes have limited space and require registration. An upcoming class is:
Intro to Microsoft Word, Wednesday, March 13 at 10 AM
