If You need Someone to Sign Off on the Time You Spend Job Searching

Staff at the Community Technology Center at the Central Library downtown are able to sign off on any time you spend in any of our classes, including Open Lab times. They are not able to vouch for you when you are using the public computers in the general computer labs.

We also offer one hour help appointments with staff members trained to help ex-offenders with anything tech-related, including applying for jobs and improving basic computer skills. Call 720-865-1706 to set up an appointment.
