As quickly as technology changes, we all are expected to adapt and keep up with it! Although it can be overwhelming at times, innovations to technology can help save you a lot of money, time, and stress, as long as you know how to use them! That's where we come in.

Here at Greenburgh Public Library, we try to make these changes just a little bit easier for everyone. We offer different services and resources to assist our patrons with technology needs. Need help with your laptop, tablet, Kindle, smartphone, or other device? We offer one-on-one, 45-minute technology appointments. On the other hand, Tech-Talk provides on-demand technology and communication training for techies and non-techies of all ages. What's more, Tech-Talk records their monthly live webinars and uploads them to their site, while their informative monthly newsletter covers relevant issues and trends in the tech field. Their most recent newsletter covered How to Block Spam Texts and Calls Use username and password gpl to get started with Tech-Talk.

Looking to learn business, software, technology and/or creative skills? LinkedIn Learning has access to the video library - 16,000 self-paced, in-depth video tutorials taught by recognized industry experts in seven languages - to help you achieve your personal or professional goals.

If you already consider yourself tech-savvy or are aspiring to be savvier, consider checking out one of the 484 technology and gaming magazines offered digitally through Libby. With Libby, magazines are always available to borrow. Choose the current or past 12 months of back issues for 14 days without waiting. Then, read magazines in the Libby app on your phone, tablet, or computer.
