As technology becomes an ever-larger part of our lives, it can be difficult to keep up with the constantly evolving world of electronic communication.
Whether it’s maneuvering the newest e-reader to download your favorite e-book, navigating the world of applying for jobs online, or even knowing how just set up an e-mail account — it can be hard to keep up.
“We get a lot of people coming in who struggle with a certain things, even just being able to create an e-mail account,” Elisa Cruz, circulation manager at Keene Memorial Library, said. “But we have so many different resources that people can use and are really just here to help.”
In an effort to help local residents do things like set up an e-mail account, create and upload online resumes, download e- and audiobooks and simply answer whatever questions they may have about online and library resources, the Keene Memorial Library is hosting an open house event on Friday.
The event will be held from 2-4:30 p.m. Oct. 12 where library staff will offer one-on-one assistance in both English and Spanish for those interested in learning how to use e-resources, e-books, create resumes, use tablets and get a library card.
“There are resources we have at the library that can be super beneficial to a lot of people in the community. A lot of times they just don’t know how to utilize them,” Cruz said.
The open house is being held in the Keene’s East Annex building and is free to attend.
“We decided to hold it in the East Annex to make it a little more private,” Cruz said. “We will have laptops and iPads set up for people who want a run down on how to use tablets and those types of technology as well.”
Refreshments will also be provided during the open house.
