Did you know that if you live locally you can obtain free digital literacy assistance at the Southeast Steuben County Library?
And if you’re pondering what exactly I mean by digital literacy assistance let me explain!
Digital literacy is simply fancy computer-speak that translated into everyday American English means we assist patrons in learning how to use their tablets, e-readers, laptops, smartphones and other tech devices.
For example, some of the items we assist patrons in learning how to include learning how to:
- Use the iPad to access the Internet, send & receive email, get apps from the App Store and more!
- Create a free e-mail account, send & receive email
- Use Microsoft Word to type letters, resumes and other documents
- Use Microsoft PowerPoint to create slideshows and presentations
- Use Skype to make video phone calls
- Use the Internet to search for information
- Learn to use the e-reader, laptop or tablet your kids gave you for your birthday
- And more!
To learn how to use your new gadget or software simply call the library and make an appointment for a free One-On-One session with a member of the library’s Digital Literacy Services team – Linda (that’s me!) or Jenn.
We can be reached by phone at the following number: 607-936-3713 ext. 502
Or you can send an email to us at: DIGLIT@STLS.ORG
Have a great Tuesday!
P.S. If you don’t live locally you can still access our blog for instructional material regarding computer, tablet and e-reader usage – simply go to our Tech Talk blog located at: https://sscltech.wordpress.com/ and click on the Online Tech Tutorials link. I’ll be adding more documents to that section later today!
