8 working days to go
today is the second last saturday that i will work. i'm going around to an old neighbour's house after work to try and set up her ebook library on her computer. she gave me her kobo last week and i've set that up. she's in her late 70's so well done to her. i love it when seniors tangle with technology. years ago i used to teach basic computing and internet to library patron's which was at times trying indeed. when someone has never held a mouse it's difficult to get past that. we used to tell them to play computer solitaire to get some mouse skills. it works. i'm not really into it now and most of our customers these days don't speak much english. we have two volunteers who take the classes now and although i've thought of returning to volunteer at the library i do not want to take back this task.
