Become a Teen Tech Tutor

Are you good with technology? Can you explain new technology to others? Then we’ve got a good gig for you!

In this ongoing program, teens help adult patrons figure out their tech problems. Saturday mornings at Cook Park Library and Saturday afternoons at Aspen Drive Library.

We keep a roster of volunteers so it’s not an every-week commitment unless you want it to be.

Download an application, fill out and submit to the Adult Services desk at Cook Park or the Reference Desk at Aspen Drive.
