Tech Guru is Now TechTime!

Technology changes fast. Whether you have been using smartphones and tablets for years, or just got your first one, it can all seem overwhelming. If you or a family member is looking for some plain-English explanations of how all this “tech stuff” works, come see the technology specialist at any of the 13 York County Libraries.  During your visit you can get more familiar with the technological side of things, although we are not a repair service, we can also recommend when it is time to think about updating your devices, without the pressure of a salesperson.

Have questions about online safety? Ask, and we will show you where you can discover helpful information to keep you safe. Concerned about being misled by “fake news” in your inbox? Have no idea how to use Facebook? You can ask questions about these and other topics and if we do not have a solution we can help you find one. For more in-depth training on various topics, join us one Saturday a month at Martin Library for TechTime Power Sessions from 10:30am-12:00pm.

In addition to technology questions, the technology specialist would love to introduce you to our eLibrary services such as Axis 360, Hoopla, ComicPlus — all FREE with your library card! Other free online resources are also available with your library card such as POWER Library, Learning Express, Rocket Languages and so much more! Our specialist can show you the ins and outs of these databases and resources.

The technology specialist is always happy to assist you in figuring out how to make technology work. Check the posted schedule on the website calendar for the monthly visits around the county or stop into Martin Library on Monday evenings and ask for assistance at our Information Services desk.
