Tech Help Guidelines

The objective of tech sessions is to teach patrons the skills they need to successfully and independently navigate their technology needs.

To protect the library and the patron, tech sessions cannot include private information, such as confidential emails, financial or medical information, employment records, social security numbers or topics deemed sensitive by library staff. As per our Reference Service Policy, library staff will not provide or offer advice, interpretation, recommendation, opinion or personal experience. Resources on specialized topics (e.g., legal, medical, financial, political, or religious) may be provided, however specifics will not be discussed.

Tech sessions are provided based on the availability of library staff and may be limited in terms of length. Appointments should be scheduled via the appointment sign-up option at ccls.libcal.com and limited to 2 times per month to provide opportunities for other patrons to take advantage of the service.

Schedule a one-on-one session tailored to your needs with Zoey, the Adult Programming & Community Outreach Librarian. Please note: the tech help sessions will be scheduled via Zoom, Google Hangouts, or Skype. Phone call sessions are limited, email Zoey to schedule a phone one-on-one tech session.
