Computer Coaching

Library staff and volunteers offer one-on-one computer coaching sessions for those who computer instruction.  We now have a computer coach available on Thursday mornings to discuss your needs and help you work on whatever skills need improving.  This could range from learning how to use a computer to becoming more proficient with Microsoft Office products. 

Call or stop by to talk with our volunteer coach or with Library staff. We have found that individualized instruction often works better than classes, and we are always glad to help!  For more information, give us a call at 706-283-5375.

Genealogy/Family History Area

The Library's Heritage area now includes more room for research and study plus 2 computers for genealogy research.  Family histories, DAR information, burials, census information and other reference material used for genealogy work are now much easier to locate and use.

There are also vertical files containing detailed family and Elbert County information, along with archival copies of the Elberton Star.  These are located in the Library's staff area and are available with assistance. 

Our microrofilm reader allows visitors to look at the very old issues of the Elberton Star and other archival records -- information may also be printed from the microfilm reader. The most recent years of the Star are now available on CD's  here in the Library (thanks to the Star), so they are now easily accessible as well.  You may also bring a camera to photograph articles from the bound versions of the paper.

If you have genealogy-related questions, please shoot us an e-mail or call the Library at 706-283-5375.
