MIDLAND, Texas (Big 2/ Fox 24)- In the age of technology your next car, apartment, and even a job are just a few clicks away.
“It’s easy to take for granted but if you’re not comfortable with the computer, you’re not familiar with it or don’t use the internet every day, then it’s something that you know you need a little help with if you don’t have that foundation,” says The Midland County Library’s Social Impact and Community Engagement Coordinator Megan Buck.
People who aren’t familiar with computers may need a little help setting up an email, sending out a resume, or simply getting on the internet. The Midland County Library is doing just that with their adult technology literacy classes every Tuesday and Thursday.
The Coordinator says that “people come in who may not have the internet at their home and there were a lot of basic skills that people you know didn’t seem to have and seemed to need help with it. People who have been out of the workforce for a while and are trying to re-enter the workforce and of course everything now you apply for jobs online only.”
She says the library staff teaches the classes before and after closing to make sure each person gets the one on one time they need and the results are priceless.
“Incredibly rewarding and I think that’s why people who work at the library love to work at the library. They want to help people and we want to provide that customer service and that personal attention that our patrons deserve.”
