This post comes from Jesse, a librarian here at Brooklyn Public Library.
At Central Library, we're trying something a little new this summer. On selected Fridays in July and August at any time from 2 to 4 pm, you can drop in to Room 216 for computer and internet help. These open workshops are for people who need more assistance than what the librarians and technology specialists at the public desks can offer, but who can't or don't want to attend a full class.
Do you want some help using a particular database? Do you want to be able to ask questions while you practice typing or using the mouse? Do you want to talk about how to get started with your research? Do you have gaps in your understanding of how a search engine works? Drop by and we'll work with you.
The next open workshop is this Friday, July 15. Additional dates are listed in the online calendar of events.
Please note that we will not be able to assist with personal laptop issues—we are not computer technicians! As always, computers for independent use are located in the divisions throughout the building.
And don't forget that the popular computer classes, conducted in partnership with New York Cares, are still being held twice every Saturday. There's a variety of topics; contact us for details.
