The Cybernaut program employs tech-savvy Angelenos at libraries across the city to provide patrons with personal computer assistance and training.
From guiding students to the rich resources of the Library and helpful homework resources, to helping adults download eBooks and complete online job applications, the Library Foundation seeks to improve the digital literacy of all Angelenos.
Cybernauts are trained to troubleshoot common computer hardware and software problems, navigate and use the Los Angeles Public Library’s digital resources, and provide quality customer service to patrons. As an entry-level employment opportunity, Cybernauts gain meaningful work experience and training and provide one-on-one assistance to patrons in their communities.
