The Sunday Computer Help for Seniors program was created to help older adult library users improve their comfort level with technology and gain new tech skills. During the one-hour sessions, led by librarians, each adult student is paired with a teen volunteer and gets constant, personalized assistance. As we have no dedicated computer lab, we are generally unable to offer group classes like this. A solution was found by using the only time the library is closed, which is Sunday mornings. In this way, we can utilize the library's bank of public computers without disturbing other users.
Older adults learn computer skills with the help of teen volunteers at the New Westminster Public Library.
