Your local library is the place to go for lifelong learning. Whether you’re working on a school assignment, looking for a new book, or simply want to gain a new skill, your public library has free, easy-to-use resources that you can access in person or online. Free high speed internet keeps people connected to school or work. Your library also offers the fast track to getting hired, with free programs to help you create a resume, search jobs, and learn job skills. Going far beyond curbside service and virtual programming, libraries provide what their communities need, from food to connectivity to entertainment to educational support, all the while striving to keep everyone safe and well. With your free library card, you can access all this and more.

Slots are 30 minutes long and only two are available per Friday. Sign up in person, via phone, or email. "Renting" a librarian is free! We can't promise to fix all of your techno-issues, but we will do our best to solve small, routine problems.
