St. George Dorchester County Library Offers Hi-Tech Help

By Erin Kleinlein

The St. George location of the Dorchester County Library is one of two locations of the county libraries, with the other in Summerville. This location offers free computer access and computer courses for those who do not have home broadband or computer access. The Summerville location also offers many of these same services. Some services other than computer classes offered in the fall and spring include eReader Assistance, E-mail and Word How-To sessions, and the “Book-A-Librarian” service.

Book-A-Librarian offers individual assistance all year and allows for a 30 to 60 minute session to receive assistance with various programs and technological tools. Librarians are able to provide support on everything from creating and printing fliers for small businesses to downloading and utilizing applications for smartphones and other devices.

Deputy Director of Dorchester County Library Jennie Redmond said, “We will attempt anything.” in regards to the services offered to citizens. The St. George Dorchester County Library is one of three public computer centers in the area that together provide a total of 61 computers for free public access. This availability of access to a computer provides opportunities for personal and economic growth in Upper Dorchester County.
