In July, Oak Park resident Kevin Scott learned how to compose and send email with the Gmail app on his phone. As he figured it out, Adult and Teen Digital Learning Librarian Rose Barnes was there to guide him.

Every month, Barnes visits the Mills Park Tower apartment building, 1025 Pleasant Place, to help residents like Scott with tech issues.

Scott has learned how to text, set up Skype, and install library apps like Hoopla and Libby to access free digital books, movies, and music. He also is a regular visitor at the Main Library, where he works with Barnes in personalized Learning Lab sessions.

“You have to stay current,” Scott said. “Seniors should not be afraid to learn about new advancements.”
