Technology How-Tos

Are you worried technology is leaving you behind? Do you need to learn the basics of computers or tablets?

When we return to in-person programming, 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 extended technology help for the foreseeable future. If you have a question, please call or stop by the Reference Desk at anytime. 

Call the library 508-693-9433, or email: with questions and help over the phone.

Tech Talk America Youtube videos offer humorous lessons on how to conquer your computer. The above video is on learning how to use Pages for Mac. Check it out and subscribe to his channel for other videos.

Google’s “Small Solves” Youtube series of 2-3 minute videos can help you get your business online, communicate with others remotely and improve your discoverability.

These videos are part of the Grow With Google campaign and were referenced in Oak Bluff’s Library’s Libraries Lead classes in July 2020, a grant program offered by Google and PLA (Public Library Association).

In summer 2020, the library hosted online classes using Digital Learn Resources, in a partnership with Grow with Google and Public Library Association’s Libraries Lead grant. That grant resulted in added access for patrons with public WIFI outside of the library building and helped the library purchase Chromebooks for circulation. 

The library continues to offer Grow with Google workshops and is considered an official partner. Please see our monthly calendar for classes.

Below is the Tackle Technology Zoom lessons from last winter. If you would like to view a recording of the session, please email Nina –
