What’s happening this week?
Jan. 19, 2019

Hello, Englewood – Let’s talk Tech! Do you have a computer or technology question, but are too afraid to ask? Have no fear, Elsie Quirk is here! If you have questions, we’ve got answers.

TECH TIME: One-on-One Help with a Librarian is your opportunity to reserve a 30-minute appointment with a reference librarian, who is at your service, ready to provide customized, personalized help with any tech questions, issues, or questions that may keep you up at night. (Here’s mine: “How do I install pop-up blocker software onto my iPad??”).

On Thursday, January 24th from 10-12pm, we are here to help – ask us anything! – so just call Elsie Quirk Library at 941-861-1207 to reserve your 30-minute appointment. Or, if you happen to be in the neighborhood, swing by the Reference Desk, and sign up in-person.

So why not treat yourself to some TECH TIME? If you’ve got questions, we’ve got answers!

So, come Find Yourself at the Library. We’re happy to help!
