Computer & Tech Help
Have a technology question? The Digital Services department is here to help. This includes, but is not limited to, library electronic resources such as Library2Go, Hoopla, Overdrive, and Kanopy. We can also assist with Microsoft or Apple applications and other non-hardware related questions. Our home base is at the Medford Library, but we visit all branches and are available by phone and email, and are happy to schedule one-on-one appointments in-person or over Zoom. We look forward to seeing you and helping you with your technology-related questions, bewilderment, concerns, and fears.
