"Where the Community Connects"

Demos with Dana

Dana is available each Wednesday & Thursday morning at the Queset House to help you better navigate this digital age, and show you how to use the equipment and databases available to you with your library card.

Register for a session with Dana to learn about:

  • Lynda.com, which has over 4,000 video courses on such wide ranging subjects as entrepreneurship to photography to excel sheets to video recording. And thanks to the Ames Free Library, you get access to Lynda.com in all its glory FOR FREE.
  • Facebook; want to get on the bandwagon and join the crowd? Or do you already have an account but aren't quite comfortable using it yet? Dana will show you the ins and outs of connecting with friends and family on Facebook.
  • Converting VHS to DVD. Wondering what to do with all those old home movies on VHS cassette? Dana will show you how to convert them onto DVDs with the library’s nifty little converter. Please keep in mind that the converter works in real-time, so if you have a 45 minute home movie it will take 45 minutes to complete.
  • Selling on eBay. Do you have some awesome stuff you're looking to sell online? Then bring yourself and your treasures down to Queset House so that Dana can show you how to become a seller on eBay. From setting up your account, to taking flattering photos of your items, Dana and the Queset House have the skills and tools to get you selling in no time!
Each session is for one hour, pre-registration is required. If you are interested in any of the topics, or want to explore the other One-On-One with an Expert programs available, please sign up for a session HERE.
