Technology How-Tos

Are you worried technology is leaving you behind?

Do you need to learn the basics of computers or tablets?

When we are open to the public, Oak Bluffs Public Library offers classes with Nina, our Reference Librarian. Course length and class topics vary. Currently, due to Covid-19, we are not offering any in-person classes or technology help for the foreseeable future. We have updated our virtual resources and will have two classes in July and an additional technology help program. Please see below for details, or call the library to leave a message 508-693-9433 or email: nferry@clamsnet.org with questions and help over the phone.
