What Our Tech Center Visitors are Saying…

 

I learned a lot about my Android! I am happy we focused on little bits of information at a time. That helped give me time for things to soak in! Thank you Chris!

I didn't know what to expect, all I wanted to do was learn how to make a call on my new phone. Now I send texts, look at my email, take photos too! May not seem like a lot but its a big step for me. I was reluctant to use my phone.

I am learning to draw and paint using my new iPad and Pencils! It's not as difficult as I thought it would be!

—  Bob

 

You don't know how much we appreciate having someone that will sit with us and be patient with our questions. That's a big deal!

I want to thank you for helping me apply online for the job. I would have no other way to apply since I don't own a PC and they would not let me fill out a paper application anymore.
