FREE Tech-Guru Training Opportunity for Adults at the Armstrong Library!

Frustrated with your laptop, tablet, smart phone, iPhone or E-Reader?  Don't despair - help is on the way.  In September a 'Technical Guru' will visit our branch to provide training sessions to help you on your device (that you already own).

If you are interested in getting some FREE help please get in touch with staff at the Armstrong library.  Sessions will run on Tuesdays afternoons starting at 2 pm.  Each session will be 45 minutes and open to a maximum of three participants.  The dates are September 1, 8 and 15.

Registration is required.

Training will be offered on the following topics:

Setting up an email account.

Searching the library catalogue or website

Searching the Internet

Researching a subject online

Help with downloading eBooks or audio books

Help using Word, Excel or PowerPoint programs (very basic information only)

What we can't help with:

- Fixing software issues, virus issues and operating system issues.  If the device has a technical problem that requires a computer tech, we can't help.  We cannot retrieve lost passwords or data.

- Programs other than basic Word, Excel and PowerPoint.  (Sorry, no CAD, accounting or gaming help).

- Assistance with other devices such as DVD players/VCRs, video cameras, go-pro cameras, scientific calculators, etc.

Medal Awards Ceremony

August 7

At the conclusion of the Build It! Magic show we will conduct our Summer Reading Club medal awards presentation with all the pomp and ceremony due such a prestigious event.  Summer Reading Club members who have completed their reading records by the 7 day of August are encouraged to attend so we may award their medals and laud their achievements.  Please remember to bring your completed reading record with you.

But…if August 7 rolls around and you are still reading, not to worry!  Keep on reading until you have filled in all seven sections of your reading record.  Bring your completed reading record to the library and receive your Summer Reading Club medal of distinction.


Something New for Summer Reading Club members!

This year every time you finish a page of your reading record (that’s seven books or reading efforts filled in) you will get a sticker and a draw slip.  Fill out your name and phone number on the draw slip and put it in the draw jar for the chance to win great book prizes. 

7 reading record pages = 7 stickers = 7 draw slips = 7 chances to win!

All draws will be made at the end of summer.
