Library’s Computer Tutor Open for Business

Does your new iPhone look cool but drive you crazy because you’re not sure how it works? Want to back up your family photos for safekeeping? Thinking about finally organizing your music library?

If you’ve got a computer headache, curiosity or question, Teton County Library’s Personal PC Computer Tutor might be able to help.

Available for up to one hour per week of one-on-one, free assistance, the tutor can help you learn about email, Microsoft Office programs, blogging, digital camera file management, iTunes and iPod, and more.

Some computer tutor success stories include showing a client how to use a voice-to-text translator, helping a business owner prepare a professional PowerPoint, and assisting a parent with creating a child’s yearbook entry in Word.

Although the service is not currently available for Mac users, it is available in both English and Spanish. To reserve a spot, call 733-2164 ext. 238 or email . For a session in Spanish, call 733-2164 ext. 237 or email . The library also offers up to 24 introductory computer classes a month on everything from blogging to Excel.
