Tech Help

Learn how to use your digital library to stream and/or download e-books, audiobooks, graphic novels, music, magazines, tv and movies.
Bring your tablet, smartphone, or laptop and prepare to spend an hour or so getting your accounts set up and your questions answered. No registration needed.
We are unable to offer these classes in person at the present time.

Basic Tech Help meets the fourth Tuesday of every month at 1 pm at the Lewiston Senior Center. Looking for a relaxed, no-stress and no-pressure environment to learn about technology? Come join us! Bring your smartphone, tablet, or laptop computer, and get your tech questions answered! No registration needed.
We are unable to offer these classes in person at the present time.

One-on-One Tech Help is available by appointment only. Our Librarian and tech volunteers have limited availability every month to sit down with folks to answer their computer, phone, and tablet questions in a quiet, confidential appointment. If you are interested in making an appointment, please call the Library at (716) 745-3555.
We anticipate the return of One-on-One Tech Help starting in October.
