Computer/Technology Learning at the Library

Please feel free to come in to the library on Thursdays, between 12 and 2 PM for help with your questions on computers, tablets, iPhones, Android phones and questions about borrowing digital library books. Cathy Gerber is there to help you in any way she can with technology issues.
Do you want to learn how to categorize your Kindle books: Mystery, Historical, Non-Fiction etc? This helps you find the book you want to read next, especially if you have a lot of books in your library.

If you are also interested in understanding the Windows 10 File Explorer (Manager) and why there seems to be multiple “Document” folders, she can explain it and offer you a handout, explaining where all your files are actually located on your computer.

Foresthill Rebounders
A Road to Recovery

We have an ongoing support group for people who are surviving various physical challenges such as strokes, cancer, Parkinsons and other life challenges, and their caregivers (advocates). Please meet with us at the Foresthill Library Community room on the fourth Wednesday of the month at 1:00 pm. We look forward to seeing you then.
