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 continue to update and expand our virtual resources and are offering weekly Zoom classes on Fridays in February.

Please see below for details, call the library 508-693-9433, or email: nferry@clamsnet.org 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.
