The Shelbyville-Bedford County Public Library has received the SeniorTrust Digital Literary Grant with which we want to start the “Teens ‘N’ Seniors prgoram. The Grant is designed to help people over the age of 60 with new technology and learning how too use devices to communicate and stay connected.
With this grant SBCPL would like to have some of our local Teens help us by offering to schedule one-on-one sessions with patrons who need a little help learning the “new” stuff; like how to work that new phone they got for their birthday, or the Chromebook their grandkids gave them so they could stay in touch, or learning how to do that teleconference call with their doctor. These are the kinds of things that they help with to keep them involved and connected to our community and to their families.
The SeniorTrust Digital Literary Grant will help us fund this program. We will have 3 Chromebook & Hot Spot sets that will only be available to patrons 60 & up. These can be used for training or checked out to use at home for a period of 1 week, free of charge.
To Make this program work WE NEED YOUR HELP! You can choose to part of this program in 2 different ways: 1. Volunteer with NO PAY-For Community Service Hrs. or 2. Volunteer with Pay – $10.00 per hr. during Grant Period. If you are interested in being one of our TEENS please fill out our online form below. If you have questions please email Mrs. Margaret at firstname.lastname@example.org
Once we have received your registration you will receive an email within 24 hours with more information on the program.
A teen volunteer will be able to help you learn how to use a new tablet/smartphone or how to use email or the internet. One-on-one sessions will be available at your convenience up to 2 hours.
