Computer tutoring at the library

Computer tutoring at the library

Join us for one-on-one computer instruction.  If you need help getting started with computers in general or need to learn about a particular program, we would be glad to help you.  You name the topic, and we’ll work together on one of our computers.

Our volunteer tutor is available on the third Wednesday of the month from 3-6 pm.  An appointment is strongly suggested.  Please contact the library at 507-744-3977 or email Marguerite Moran to schedule your session.

Some topics that we can help with:

  • Computer basics: What’s this mouse thing for again?
  • e-mail basics
  • Microsoft Word
  • Excel (spreadsheets)
  • Internet search strategies
  • Getting started with Overdrive (e-books)

Are you a computer whiz who would like to help teach others?  We could always use more volunteers.
