Crowell Public Library: Helping Hands for Hand-Held Devices

first_img Community News Business News Electronically savvy and patient volunteers from the National Charity League will be available on Saturday June 10 from 2:00 PM to 4:00 pm at Crowell Public Library’s Barth Community Room to help frustrated people figure out how to use their hand-held devices. Many people who have iPods, Androids, tablets, iPhones, and other gadgets, can’t figure out all of the features. The young volunteers are familiar with many of the concepts behind these devices, so even if they haven’t used a particular gadget, they may be able to help a person figure out what to do.This program was initiated by San Marino High School student Chunbill “Billy” Liu who grew up surrounded by gadgets, but noticed there was a technology gap with people who did not have that advantage. Billy approached Crowell Library about closing this gap, while getting in some community services hours for himself and his friends, but the program has continued because there is such a need. Now volunteers from National Charity League have stepped in to help the tech-needy!If you are frustrated with online and telephone support options, come to Crowell Library and work with a living, breathing techie that will help you “bond” with your device. There’s nothing like one-on-one assistance to help solve problems and tackle sticky widgets.Registration is required for this program. To reserve your spot, please call 626-300-0777, extension 579 as soon as possible. There are a limited number of volunteers, so slots will fill quickly.Crowell: First Library in the World to Offer Dakim Brain Fitness.Crowell Public Library, 1890 Huntington Drive, San Marino, (626) 300-0777, or visit www.CrowellPublicLibrary.org, or their Facebook and Twitter pages.
