The library’s Tech a la Carte program offers private technology training sessions for groups of 6-12 people. Contact us with the class you are interested in, the number of people in your group and a few date options. A business library card is required to schedule a class and the person scheduling must be listed on the card. The remaining attendees do not need to be cardholders.
