Welcome to the Temiskaming Shores Public Library!
If you have used technology services at the TSPL in the last month, we encourage you to fill out this survey. Your answers will help the public library improve and prioritize its technology services and show how important it is for those services to be delivered to the community.
This includes connecting to the Internet (e.g., through WiFi, at a workstation, etc.), using equipment, software and facilities (e.g., Digital Creator Space, audio-visual production equipment, business-related software, devices used for entertainment, etc.), digital literacy and technology classes (Gadget Helper and the NEOnet courses), digital literacy and technology support (if you’ve stopped by with questions about electronic devices).
