Computer Support Program

The Literacy Society of the North Okanagan has partnered with the Okanagan Regional Library (Vernon Branch) to provide basic computer tutoring services for adults.

There will a volunteer available at the Vernon library on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Adults can register for one hour of help with a volunteer during those times.

Tutors will be able to help with iPads, tablets, laptops or the library computers.

Tutoring pairs work on the following skills;

  • Setup up and/or using an email account
  • Sending and saving photos
  • Searching the internet and saving links
  • Creating folders and saving files
  • Understanding your computer, android tablet or iPad

Our Volunteers:


Without our dedicated volunteers this program would not be possible.
Our volunteers are all required to;


  • Attend an orientation/training session
  • Undergo a criminal record check
  • Receive ongoing support from the program coordinator

Would you like to be a volunteer tutor? Contact the Coordinator at computersupport@literacysociety.ca or give us a call at 250-275-3117.

“I hope this program can continue as it makes for a healthy and social environment for seniors in the community.”
