Well, you're in luck: Belmont High School's Teen Techs – the town's own Geek Squad – will be available for a limited time this month to help Belmont Public Library patrons with e-readers, downloading from the digital catalog, basic Internet help, social media and any other weirdness you encounter.
Teen Tech Tutor sessions are available today and Thursdays in January from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. Sign-up is required, and space is limited. Register on-line for the date and time preferred, or call the reference desk at 617-993-2870.
