Become a Teen Tech Tutor

Are you good with technology? Can you explain new technology to others? Then we've got a good gig for you.

In this ongoing program, teens help adult patrons at the library figure out their tech problems with email, attachments, social media, and the library's e-collections.

Sessions are held Saturday mornings at Cook Park Library and Saturday afternoons at Aspen Drive Library. We keep a roster of volunteers so it's not an every-week commitment unless you want it to be.

Download an application, fill out and submit to the Adult Services desk at Cook Park or the Reference Desk at Aspen Drive.
