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.

In 2010 Jonathan received a degree in Community Informatics from the University of Michigan. He enjoys the ways our free computer classes can help foster community development. Jonathan sees working in the Training Lab as a means to see direct impacts from technology training as well as an opportunity to learn about new gadgets and tools.
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.
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.
