You have technology questions, and we have answers…

Are you curious about online streaming and e-books, wary of online shopping, intrigued by video chatting, or baffled by terms like The Cloud, Bluetooth, or Podcast? Want to know who (or what) the heck Alexa is or simply want to learn how to better maintain and navigate your smartphone or tablet?

Join Marianne on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of the month to enjoy a warm cup a coffee as we explore a variety of technology topics through casual, guided instruction in a small group! Not a coffee drinker? No worries; additional drinks and refreshments will be provided.

Tech Talk & Coffee Hour is a no-pressure, judgment-free zone. We’re here to help you learn and build confidence in your technology know-how! However, some basic knowledge of your device is necessary to participate. If you have trouble with functions like web searching or using e-mail, we recommend that you schedule a one-on-one computer class to learn the basics.

Psst…You might also enjoy Coffee Hour at Lebanon Junction Branch Library.
