While our building is closed, our e-library is open! Visit our e-library page here to make use of our great collection of ebooks, audiobooks, videos, magazines, and databases. One of the most popular features of our library is our programming, and it is important to us to continue to provide this valuable resource to our community during this time. Staff is working hard to create virtual programming that will be engaging and entertaining for patrons of all ages. Click on our calendar of events to check out our offerings and register. You can read our Online Program Disclaimer here.

If you have a reference or library-related technology question, email director@pattersonlibrary.org and someone will get back to you. You can also access our list of staff here to contact an individual staff member directly.

If you have a more general technology-related question, Don Fitzmahan, an Open Computer Help guru at the Patterson Library, has generously offered online tech help. As with our normally scheduled Open Computer Help sessions, Don will be available to offer support for all device types and operating systems via phone, email or Zoom. He can help with general problem solving as well as learning new things. Examples of what he can help with include: grocery shopping online; online banking; using video chats (FaceTime/Skype/Google Hangouts); eEmail/Text/Calendar; help with security/passwords; using “the Cloud;” organizing your device; changing settings and using Siri/Google Assistant. Contact him by email at dftechman@gmail.com, or text or call (845-202-3342) to arrange a one-on-one meeting time. The initial and general diagnostic discussions could be done via a phone call, but people will be encouraged to join a Zoom meeting to work on more complex problems.
