Community Computer Labs
Current LPL Lab Hours
- Monday – Saturday: 10 – 3 pm
- Monday – Thursday: also open 5:30 pm – 7 pm.
Local residents of all ages are invited to sharpen their technology skills by visiting LPL’s Community Computer Lab. There are a number of ways the lab may be used:
- Career building (applying for jobs, writing resumes, etc)
- Learning basic technology skills
- Accessing government services (Rent Rebates, Safelink wireless)
- Language Learning (Rosetta Stone program)
The lab is open to the public free of charge in the Library’s computer classroom, which is located on the second floor by the elevator. There is no need for advance registration as the lab is being run on a drop-in basis. Please note that the Community Computer Lab will be closed on days when the Library is closed. (Click here for Library hours and holiday closings.)
The lab sessions are staffed by students from Kaplan University who are ready to provide informal instruction in and assistance with a number of basic computer activities, such as online job searches, resume writing, setting up email accounts, learning how to use instant messaging, and employing the Internet to manage personal finances online or to access information on voting or other government issues or services. They will offer pointers on how to use word-processing and spread-sheet programs, and keyboarding tutorials are also available for those looking to acquire or improve typing skills.
The Community Computer Lab project is a Digital Divide initiative of Lewiston’s Downtown Education Collaborative (DEC).For more information on the LPL computer lab, call our Reference Desk at 513-3135.
