The Geek Squad Returns to the Cambridge Public Library!

Technology students from Cambridge Central School are once again staffing the Cambridge Public Library for the summer to assist patrons with their computer or device questions. This year’s Geek Squad participants include:

Digby Baker-Porazinski

Digby returns to the Geek Squad as a mentor for his second year. Last year Digby built two computers for the library, while also assisting many patrons with their technology questions.

Delaney Smith
Delaney returns as a mentor to the new Geek Squad members. After working as a Geek Squad member last summer, she remained an employee of the Cambridge Public Library throughout the school year.

Abigail Daniels
Abby, a soon-to-be junior at Cambridge Central School, joins the Geek Squad for the summer of 2015. She has been interested in technology since eighth grade, and is excited to share her knowledge with the patrons of the Cambridge Public Library.

Audrey Roosevelt
Audrey joins the Geek Squad for the first time this summer. A frequent flyer at the Cambridge Central School high school library, she can’t wait to begin assisting patrons and answering questions as a part of this popular program.

Recently, the Cambridge Public Library’s Geek Squad program was presented with the Southern Adirondack Library System’s Library Program of the Year Award for its innovative collaboration between Cambridge Central School and the public library.

Students will be in the library for most hours when the library is open. Assistance is available on a drop-in basis or by appointment. The Cambridge Public Library’s hours are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday 6:30-9:00 PM, Tuesday and Thursday 1:00-5:00 PM, and Saturday 10:00 AM-5:00 PM. For more information about the Geek Squad program please call the library at 677-2443.
