30-minute Appointment

If you have specific tech-related questions, you may schedule a one-on-one computer assistance session with a knowledgeable staff member. To set up a session, please call 412-882-6622 or email Licia or Sarah to arrange a mutually compatible time.

  • Due to limited staff time and availability, sessions are limited to 30 minutes and patrons may only sign up for a session once per month.
  • These sessions are designed to be instructional, library staff may provide support, but cannot execute the actual work.
