Digital Navigators


Having difficulty connecting to the internet? Feeling left behind by technology? Need help with your computer or smartphone? Digital Navigators are here to help. We can share resources on connecting to affordable internet service, provide tech tutoring, and may be able to connect you with a free device!

We currently operate, by appointment, Monday through Friday. For assistance, please call 959-261-0689 and leave your name, phone number, and a brief description of how we can assist you. A Digital Navigator will contact you to schedule an appointment at Miller Memorial Library, Brundage Community Branch, Whitneyville Branch, or any public location that works for you.

Thank you! We look forward to connecting with you!

“To be able to work with a person one on one was very important to me. I am a visual learner and to see for myself how to use my phone and computer was extremely valuable and very helpful. This is a wonderful service!”

“Did not have a computer that I could use for tutoring students on-line. Your program gave me one… I was overwhelmed with gratitude. I was not comfortable w/ my basic computer skills and have progressed a lot.”

“I was thrilled to have the opportunity to participate in this program. It enables me to gain confidence and enhance my computing skills.”

“Once I start working with the Digital Navigators Team I have the confidence to work by myself without fear of doing something wrong. The Team helps you gain assurance to be able to do technology by yourself…. The laptop help me so much with my daily living and doing business on the laptop…. Thank you!!!”
