Helping Hands for Hand-Held Devices

Electronically savvy students from San Marino High School will be available on Monday night, May 12th from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. at Crowell Public Library’s Thornton Room to help people figure out how to use their hand-held devices. Lots of people have their own iPods, Androids, tablets, iPhones, and other devices, but they can’t figure out some of the features. The teen volunteers are pretty familiar with many of the concepts behind these devices, so even if they haven’t used a particular device, they may be able to help a person figure out what to do. The Library works with teens to try to match them up with those who are perplexed with their gadgets. During a similar session in April, patrons were quite pleased with the assistance they received from these service-oriented teenagers.

Those having frustrations with online support options, come to Crowell Library and work with a living, breathing techie that will help everyone “bond” with their device. There’s nothing like one-on-one assistance to help solve problems and tackle sticky widgets. To reserve a spot for this program and to match volunteers with patrons and types of devices, please call (626) 300-0777, extension 579 to make a reservation as soon as possible. There are a limited number of teen volunteers, so slots will fill quickly!
