TECH Teach-Ins


These days, finding a job, applying for government assistance, or even being civically engaged requires you to use a computer. That's why we aren't waiting for building projects to make improvements! Each and every public computer has been upgraded and the Downtown Library has added additional computers to meet the high demand.

Now that we have the technology, we're ready to help you learn how to use it. TECH Teach-In classes cover a range of topics and are presented at multiple branches. For a complete list of locations and times, call 831-427-7717 or visit the library's online calendar at

Tech Teach-ins will begin in October 2017
