Are you or do you know a high school student interested in the Internet and computer technology? Would you like to use your skills to assist other community members? The Reading Public Library welcomes you to fill out an application to become a volunteer Netguide. Netguides assist in introductory Internet and technology classes and/or provide one-on-one technology training to people of all ages, backgrounds, and skill levels.
How do you become a Netguide? Stop by the Reading Public Library Information Desk to obtain a Netguide application. Applications are also available online at www.readingpl.org/research-learning/netguides. The deadline to apply is January 14, 2012. Once the library receives and reviews the applications, staff members will schedule short interviews with each candidate. While technology skills are important, we also look for personable, patient and positive candidates.
All successful applicants must complete a three-hour training session provided by Reading Public Library staff. Students who successfully complete the training will qualify to be Reading Public Library Netguides. Each Netguide must provide technical assistance for at least four hours per month through June 2012.
Students participating in this program will gain valuable computer and Internet experience. This is also a good way to earn required service hours for the National Honor Society or any other church or community service group. In addition, the Netguide program looks great on college and job applications!
If you need further information on becoming a Netguide or if you would like to sign up for a Netguide appointment, please contact Lorraine Barry at 781 942-6703 or email email@example.com.
