Free Computer Classes Coming to Downtown Library in 2010

Did you finally break down and buy yourself that computer?  Now if you can only figure out how to use it. 

The Downtown Library, 300 Park Avenue, can help with that.  The library is presenting a series of instructional sessions January through May, 2010, in the Route 66 Computer Lab from 6-7:30pm on the first, second, and third Tuesday of each month.

“If people don’t know how to use a computer these days,” said librarian Wendy Gabrielson, “they just fall farther and farther behind on the information highway.  That’s why we’ll have trainers in place to get everyone who attends our classes up to speed on computer basics.”

Sessions will include Computer Basics I and II, Facebook, Resumes and On-line Job Searching, Internet Searching, Blogging, Excel Basics, Internet Fraud, Keyboarding, Email and Gmail, and How to Buy and Sell on eBay.

All the sessions are free, open to the public, and suitable for all ages.   Please call 231-8650 for more information or to sign up.  More information is also available on the Metropolitan Library System’s website, www.metrolibrary.org.
