A new tech-savvy volunteer, Elizabeth Arnold (center), is now working at the Lincoln County Public Library to help with technology needs, education and awareness. The Mississippi State University Extension service in Lincoln County and the library have partnered with the Master Technology Innovator Program, which places volunteers in community anchor institutions. Volunteers will help people with activities like learning computer and Internet basics, opening email accounts, helping with resumes and applying for jobs online, explaining social media privacy and security settings and learning to use specific technologies like mobile devices or e-readers. Ashley Tucker at the Extension Service is heading up the program.
