How can librarians help older generations become comfortable in a world where many essential services have moved online? Join technology librarian Alison Mirabella for this one-hour lecture during which we’ll explore curriculum ideas for group classes, ways to structure one-on-one appointments and how to encourage seniors to explore their devices without fear.
