Organization: New York Public Library
Background: The 67th Street Branch was one of the Carnegie branches built with funds donated to the City of New York by Andrew Carnegie. While originally opened in 1905, it has gone through two major renovations that refurbished the Library's architecture and modernized its access and services. The library's 14,000-square foot interior has also been reconfigured, providing additional computer space, a redesigned children's floor, a community room, and new restrooms to better serve the Upper East Side community.
Task: Connect adults and seniors with basic computer skills. Work to develop their computer knowledge through the introduction of Microsoft Suite and Internet browsing.
Note: If you have already signed up for the first Computer Basics event on April 12th, please sign up for another volunteer event, so that others can have a chance to attend this event. New volunteers will be asked to fill out the NYPL volunteer application.
