Technology Classes

The Crete Public Library is happy to offer basic computer assistance for those in need. Technology classes are held monthly with rotating topics. If the class time/topic isn’t what you need, you can use the Book-a-Librarian service for one-on-one assistance with the topic of your choice (restrictions apply). If you want help a little faster, we offer 24/7 access to Lynda.com, an online database full of helpful videos and tutorials for various technology needs. Lynda.com is only available to Crete Public Library cardholders.
