I was always happy with the feedback I was getting from my patrons for helping with various technology problems.  It was difficult to get people to come and participate in my classes but I had regulars that scheduled appointments for me.  There was one patron in particular who always called me with some type of urgent technology problem.

I had an elderly patron come in who needed help accessing her unemployment information in order to fill out her tax forms. This was last week and well after the standard tax due date, so she was extremely flustered at being unable to complete her taxes without this information. She had waited because she was unsure of how to access the information and print it off in order to complete her forms.
