Frequently Asked Questions

I have a new device, can someone help me set it up?

Can I try out new applications at a Tech Help session?

Yes, if you want to learn to use a new application like Microsoft Word, Google Docs, Adobe Acrobat, a new Internet browser, or any other common application, we can help! Please bring your own device to learn on.

Can someone help me with my email at a Tech Help session?

Yes, if you are having trouble sending emails or text messages, we can walk through the problem together.

Can someone show me how to use the Library’s public computers and tablets?

Yes, stop by the library any time (not just at a Tech Help session!) and ask someone at the Information Desk how to use our computers and tablets, everyone is welcome to use them.

I have a Kobo eReader, can I use it to borrow eBooks?

Yes, certain models of Kobo eReaders have a built-in app called Libby (aka Overdrive) that allows you to borrow eBooks straight from our catalog. A Tech Help session is a great time to ask about these things!

Can I bring my broken device to a Tech Help session?

No, we can’t promise we can fix your broken devices. We CAN help you find a book on electronic repairs!

What if I have a virus or malware on my computer and I need help?

If you have a virus or malware on your device, please seek help from any of the computer repair shops in town. Our library staff is here to help you learn to use your tech, but they cannot repair your device.

Why does the Squamish Public Library offer help with technology?

Libraries are centers for learning and information, and in the digital age, we have an important role to play in promoting digital literacy to our community. We want you to have access to the resources and knowledge you need to navigate today’s modern world.
