Library Tutor


Looking to gain community service hours? Become a technology tutor at Caldwell Public Library to help senior citizens improve their technology skills. This program is in partnership with CyberSeniors and the BestBuy Foundation.

About the Program

The library is training teens (ages 14-18) to become technology tutors for local senior citizens to help bridge the generational technology gap. Volunteers must complete 5 weekly trainings before participating in the tutoring event. Volunteers can then choose to continue tutoring at the library in the future without having to retake the training program.

What Volunteers Will Learn

On top of earning community service hours, volunteers will learn how to use and troubleshoot a wide variety devices, operating systems, software, applications, and more. They will enhance their own technology skills while learning how to help others do the same. Here are just some of the topics the trainings will cover:

  • Multiple Operating Systems (macOS, Android, Windows, Linux)

  • Popular Software (Microsoft Office,  Adobe Creative Cloud, etc.)

  • Ebooks & Audiobooks (Listening Devices and Apps)

  • Texting, Emailing, and Video Calling

  • Common Applications (Social Media, Maps, Games, Delivery Services, etc.)

Time Commitment

Volunteers must attend 5 weekly training sessions to participate in the final tutoring event. Training sessions begin the week of July 13, 2023. Sessions will be held every Thursday from 10a.m.-12 p.m. at Caldwell Public Library.


After the training sessions are complete, volunteers will be eligible to participate in our tutoring program where they will be paired with a local senior citizen to help them improve their technology skills. The tutoring programs will be held from 10am-12 pm on Saturday, August 19. Seniors who wish to book a tutoring session can call the Library at 208-459-3242.
