Where there's a will there's a 会


Now I'm the one confused. Dawei goes to Shanben's room and says

我去图书馆借书,不会用那儿的电脑查书。
你会不会?
I go to the library to borrow books, don't know how to use the computers there to seek out books. Do you know how?

Question: When did Dawei go to the library? Is he telling about a frustrated trip to the library in the past? Or on his way to the library, aware that he will have trouble using it? Is he speaking (or thinking) past tense or future? It's Chinese! But if David could figure it out, so can I!
