Digital Navigator Service

Free Support for your tech needs!

Being online is important for everything from job hunting to finding a place to live, and staying in touch with friends and family. Getting connected isn’t always easy. And it can be costly. Digital Navigators of the Hudson Valley can help! Navigators are people at local community organizations, such as libraries, that can help you find low-cost internet service, get your device working, and do things on computers or smartphones. What does it cost? Nothing! It’s free to get help. Digital Navigators of the Hudson Valley is supported with federal American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds allocated to the New York State Library by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS; imls.gov) and administered by Southeastern NY Library Resources Council.
