Connecting through COVID

 Tech Help & Computer Access

Bowen Library is pleased to present the Connecting Through COVID program, providing library access and technical assistance to seniors and other vulnerable populations to find and use online resources that will support them during the pandemic and beyond.

We are offering:

  • Seniors’ Hours — specific times for seniors only to use the library (Thursdays 10 am-12 pm)
  • Special Tech Tutor times for in-person and remote help with devices and technological help.
  • Public Internet Computer — 45-minute sessions available; black & white printer available.


 Tech Tutoring

1-hour Appointments: Whether you have your own device or not, we can help you navigate the online world that is becoming the “new normal.” From doctor’s appointments to family gatherings, COVID has changed the way we connect and the way we have our needs met. The Connecting Through COVID program is here to help you use the online resources, platforms, and government services that will connect you to health, financial, and social support. Masks, plexi-barriers and safety protocols are in place.
