Check Out A Skill
You've checked out plenty of books to learn on your own, why not 'check out a skill' and get one-on-one help to learn something new?!?!
Visit the second floor staff, call 613-968-6731 x 2037 or email to tell us what you'd like to learn: a staff member will set up an appointment for you to come in and spend an hour learning something new. Some of our most frequently requested skills include using Facebook or Skype; using a tablet or eReader; how to upload photos to a computer; and how to research family history.
Adult Computer Workshops
The Information Services Department is pleased to offer Adult Computer Workshops to BPL members at no cost. If you know someone who might benefit from learning the basics of using a computer, using the internet or email, please contact Information Services located on the 2nd floor or by telephone at 613-968-6731 x 2037. Pre-registration is required, space is limited; priority will be given to those who have not already taken the course and those who have a valid library card.
