We offer a wide range of beginner-level computer classes, covering topics such as e-reading, popular software, and focused research on various subjects. In each class, we aim to familiarize you with resources to increase your confidence using technology. Classes are free and open to the public (you do not need a GEPL card to attend).
Many of our classes cover how to use library databases for independent learning, research, reference, and more. Most of our databases are available to GEPL members 24/7. You will need to enter your valid (non-expired, in good standing) GEPL card in order to log in.
To learn more about our databases and to use them from home, please click here.
In addition, we also offer Technology Drop-in nights, usually held on the first Tuesday of the month between 6:30 and 8:00 pm. Please check the calendar link above to verify the date. No registration is required to attend – just “drop in” with your e-reader, tablet, smartphone, or whatever device you need assistance with! First come, first served.
If you are interested in scheduling a one-on-one help session with a librarian for e-reading, research, business help, or technology, please contact Mary Kay Akers, Instruction and Business Outreach Librarian, at (630) 790-6750. You may also email Mary Kay email@example.com. In your message, please describe the issue you are having, the device you use if applicable, and several available meeting times.
