The library is currently seeking volunteers to help train and assist others with their technology, software and device questions.
Description: We are looking for people-oriented and friendly volunteers. Volunteers should have a passion for technology and possess basic computer skills. We need volunteers who would like to work as part of a team and be interested in learning additional skills.
Volunteers can help in a variety of ways including
- assisting patrons in hands-on computer classes: help patrons follow the instructor’s directions and guide them as they use a computer
- participating in device or downloading classes: help patrons with tablets or iPads under the guidance of a library staff member
- participating in one-to-one tutoring with patrons who have completed a library computer class
- helping with computer class tasks: make phone calls or copy class handouts
Time commitment: Approximately 2-3 hours each month assisting in a computer class.
Volunteers who have more time, interest or expertise are welcome to give additional time as needed to help with one-on-one tutoring.
Experience as an instructor or tutor is ideal, but not required.
Please note: Applicant must be at least 16 years of age. Younger teens can find volunteer opportunities through IPPL’s Kids & Teens department.
