Library Day

Tuesday, September 08, 2009

Every Tuesday I volunteer at our local library. Today was a bit different day then usual. Normally I have either one or two people I computer coach and I do two hours of stacking the book shelves. Today I had one person. He had never used a computer, not unusual, and that is why I volunteer as a computer coach. He needed to get an email address and fill out some online forms. Normally this could be done quickly but for whatever reason I couldn't get gmail to accept his info, so we tried Yahoo, same thing. I tried 3 times with gmail and twice in Yahoo. Finally I tried a different computer. Bingo worked fine. So I'm wondering what that computer was doing that made gmail and yahoo reject his info. This took 45 minuets Should have been a 5 minute project. So then I helped him with the rest of what he needed. This man was so nice, he kept apologizing to me because everything took so long. I told him not to worry I was there for him and as a volunteer I could take as long as needed to help him. When we finished he signed up to see me again in two weeks and I went off to stack the shelves for an hour and a half. I really do like volunteering at the library. I do love books and reading.

    Wow! Cape Coral Public Library? I think I'll look you up the next time I am in there...even though I have a degree in history and research. Sounds like you are doing good work.
