Whether you’re a novice or an expert, the library has a lot to offer if you’re looking to improve your technological skills or to troubleshoot a problem you’re having.
If all else fails, you can always ask our reference librarian via email (email@example.com), phone (401-647-5133) or in person.
You can make an appointment for any time we are open with the reference librarian to get one-on-one tech help. We can meet for a video conference on Zoom, and discuss whatever questions you have.
Appointments last one hour, and can cover any tech topic. Here are some common things that reference librarians help patrons with:
We now offer mobile printing through Princh!
Printing from your phone and tablet
The new printing solution is available on mobile phones and tablets. Download the free Princh app from the App Store or Google Play. Check the printing from your iPhone video guide or the printing from your Android video guide to see the steps you need to follow to start.
Printing from your own laptop
Guide posters are also set up within the library, and you can always ask our staff for help.
GCF Learnfree is a free 24-hour online classroom that presents tutorials about computers, technology, skills for the workplace and everyday life, GED prep, reading, and math. It is an amazing resource for anyone who wants to learn. If you can’t make it to the library, head here. They have lessons and tutorials in text and video format.
If you’re learning Excel and you can’t get what you need from a tutorial on other sites, Chandoo is devoted to teaching people about Excel, from total basics to advanced techniques. They do offer paid lessons, but they have a vast array of free resources that we recommend to anyone interested in learning Excel.
The Denver Public Library offers amazing technology classes – you can’t benefit from their awesome librarians online, but you can download all of their handouts and tutorials. If you’re looking for something a unusual or specific, such as how to create business cards using Microsoft Publisher or Computación Básica (en Español), you might find something there.
If there’s any class you see there that you would like us to teach, call or send an email to Katherine in reference.
