Next Monday the Metropolitan Fire Service will be giving an informative talk about home fire safety at 10.30.
No booking required, just come along and join in.
So this week, by popular demand, we’ve relaunched our Tech Savvy 1on1 Help Sessions. That’s excellent you say! So what are they and how do they work?
Well, have you been wanting to understand your device better? Maybe you’d like to check out some of the eBooks and eAudiobooks that the library has available, but are unsure of the process? That’s where we come in. Every fortnight for eight weeks from Wednesday the 27th September, we will have three sessions available for our customers to book in to at the Evanston Gardens Library. You will need your device/s, your app store login details and your library membership details, then we’ve got forty minutes to go through your queries!
Previous attendees have said they love the atmosphere in the library, the staff are patient, friendly and explain things clearly when going through the different processes. One lady had the Facebook app downloaded onto her tablet, but did not know how to post to create the conversations she saw happening among her family and friends. We went through the process and what each part meant, culminating in a library selfie and her first Facebook post! That illustrates the reason these sessions exist. We have heard from many community members and library customers that they want to participate in the digital world around them but lack the confidence and knowledge to progress with their devices.
We hope to assist our attendees with; basic tablet and smartphone skills; accessing the library’s eCollection; understanding the security measures of your device; learning the steps to update your device’s operating system and using the WiFi.
If any of these topics sound like something you’d be interested in, please give our library staff a call and book into one of the available sessions. We have 12 forty minute sessions available on Wednesdays (27 September, 11 & 25 October and 08 November) at the Evanston Gardens Branch Library at 9:15am, 10:00am and 10:45am. We’re looking forward to helping you get more out of your devices and the digital world around us.
