The Buffalo and Erie County Public Library offers you a helping hand while you learn to navigate the networked, electronic world. Whether you are learning to use the mouse, search the Internet or borrowing Library eBooks for your eReader, the Library can offer assistance through hands-on workshops, free instruction guides and assistance from library staff. All classes are taught on Windows 7 computers.



Andy has been a Librarian with the Buffalo & Erie County Public Library since March 2008. Assigned to the Training Lab as of February 2011, he enjoys exploring new technologies then teaching them to the library community. Favorite classes include eBooks & eReaders, Facebook, and Skype.

After working as a class moderator Chelsey is glad to be teaching computer classes to the patrons of the Buffalo and Erie County Public Library. Her favorite classes to date are Google It! and Skype. Besides teaching her favorite part of the job is seeing the diverse nature of our County and meeting different people.

With over three years of library experience at the Buffalo & Erie County Library System under his belt, Jordan joined the training lab team in March of 2012.  Of the many free courses offered, teaching patrons the wonders of the web in Internet Basics remains his favorite, but helping people with their eReaders is always a pleasure.  When he's not spreading the good word of the digital age to willing listeners, he's busy watching, reading and writing about cinema.

Ian has worked with the Buffalo & Erie County Public Library in varying roles since 2007. He began teaching classes with the Training Lab in 2009, but then took a brief hiatus to travel the world and live in China. He recently returned to rejoin the team a wiser man. He enjoys teaching basic Office programs like Word, because of their practical value for job seekers. While out of the office, Ian can be seen running (recreationally) around Buffalo, following the dao (道).


Sean is a Library Associate who began with the Buffalo and Erie County Public Library in 2001 and joined the Central Training Lab in 2013. He enjoys helping patrons become more comfortable and familiar with the computer, Internet and other technologies. Sean’s favorite classes are Google It and Internet Basics. While away from the lab, Sean enjoys hanging out with his Wife and Daughter.


Kara has been working as a Librarian for the Buffalo & Erie County Public Library system since 2000. She enjoys visiting and teaching at all of our Library branches across the County. Her favorite class is Computer Basics because it’s rewarding to see students who have never used a computer before confidently clicking away within a short period of time.
