    Are you having trouble downloading e-books from the library? Don’t understand your new laptop or tablet? Need help troubleshooting problems with your email account? How about setting up a Facebook account?

    You can come to the Greenfield Public Library for help. One-on-one technology help appointments are available daily at the Greenfield Public Library. Call the Information Services desk at 413-772-1544 x6 or come in to set up an appointment with Lisa, Hannah or Shirley. 30 minute appointments are available Monday through Friday.

    Examples of topics we can help with include how to:
