Tech Help Policy

Taken from the Information Services Policy

  • Staff provide general assistance to patrons using the library’s computers and printer service. Patrons using the library’s computers are expected to understand computer basics such as using a mouse and navigating the internet.
  • Patrons needing more in depth technology help may make an appointment for one- on-one technology assistance for up to one hour. Patrons can bring their own device or can utilize the library’s public computers. In order to insure that this tech help is equitably available to all patrons, we ask that no more than two appointments per month be made.
  • Drop-in-tech help is available to assist with less complex computer issues that require 15 -20 minutes of help. The sessions may be limited in time depending on the number of people needing help. Please check library’s website for drop in tech help day and time.
  • Troubleshooting computer hardware problems, running virus scans, installing software, etc. are beyond the scope of the library’s tech help. The library reserves the right to determine whether a patron’s request for tech help is beyond the scope of service.


Computer classes on a variety of topics are available. See what upcoming classes are available in the Calendar of Events.
