We’re pleased to say the Computer Lab has been reopened under the guidance of our new Computer Lab Instructor, Chris Soper! Chris previously worked at Manchester Public Library as a Library assistant who specialized in helping the public with computers. He is currently working on his Master’s of Library Science at Southern Connecticut State University.
Chris loves to read and would love to hear your recommendations for great dystopian-type novels. Currently, his favorite books are Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card, Rot and Ruin by Jonathan Mayberry, and the series A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin.
“My goal as the Computer Lab Instructor is to provide new, fun and educational programs to the public. My hope is for people to learn about the advantages of technology and how it can help you with your technological needs. I’m very friendly and I don’t bite, so please visit and ask me anything you would like to know about computers or other electronic devices.”
Due to the loss of our computer instructor, who has taken a position elsewhere, the Computer Lab at the Main Library is closed and will remain closed until a new instructor is hired. All classes are cancelled and one-on-one instruction will not be available.
We know many of you will be inconvenienced by the closure of our computer lab. If you are looking for computer instruction, Bristol Adult Continuing Education and the Senior Center both offer classes. Contact Bristol Adult Continuing Education at (860) 584-7865 & the Senior Center at (860) 584-7895.
If you are looking for resume writing or job search strategy workshops, contact the New Britain CT Works Center @ (860) 827-6240 or the Newington Goodwill Career Center at (860) 665-0881.
Scanning services are available at Staples on Route 6/Farmington Avenue.
