My Library – Tech Help

Please note: the in-person assistance part of this service is limited due to COVID 19 restrictions

Do you need help with using your digital device, searching the internet or library catalogue, or using our eLibrary?

Why not book an individual My Library – Technology and Information Assistance session OR bring along a couple of friends and learn together!  (See below, or click on the green button, for details about the service).

 

My Library appointments are for individual or small group lessons designed to help you learn at your own pace but with guidance from library staff. Bookings are essential but every attempt is made to cater to your preferred time and library branch; most appointments are for Gladstone, Boyne Island, and Miriam Vale branches.

Bookings can be made between 9:30 and 4:30 on most weekdays; Saturday Sessions are available several times a year (check the dates and times via our What’s On page).  Saturday Sessions can be booked for an hour but drop-in assistance is also available if bookings permit.

 

Ask about our My Library service at your local Gladstone Regional Libraries’ branch or phone Gladstone City Library (4976 6400) to make a booking.
