Senior Tech Zone, a partnership with the Johnson County Livable Community for Successful Aging continues this winter at the Iowa City Public Library.

ICPL and JCLC are continuing their partnership, with ICPL providing the space and equipment needed, and one to two senior JCLC volunteers staffing ICPL’s in-house Computer Lab once a week, offering tech support and computer help to seniors who stop by on Thursdays.
When:10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Thursdays; Second Floor Computer Lab.

The public is welcome to ask about any of these services at the Help Desk at ICPL, or by calling 319-356-5200.
