“Infinite Tech Questions…Itty-Bitty Working Space,” is presented by Teresa Schmidt of the Mercer Public Library. The Mercer Public Library is known for its strong technology help services, regularly providing patrons with computer classes, technology appointments, and Q&A sessions to answer questions about their smartphones, tablets, computers, and other gadgets. Some small libraries assume that it takes a particularly tech-savvy staff member to be able to provide patron tech help, but there are many steps that any library can take to provide this useful service for their patrons. This webinar will include tips and tricks for any public library that wants to formalize a tech help program for adult library patrons. View it here.
