About Computer Library Computer Classes
The library provides free computer classes to its patrons with the intent on emboldening computer literacy in our community and doing our part to close the digital divide.

Classes either take the form of a workshop, where patrons follow along with an exercise, or a lecture, where patrons are introduced to the content in a more traditional setting.

We hold classes in the morning from 10:00 A.M. until 11:30 A.M.
The library also sometimes holds lectures in the evening from 6:30 P.M. until 8:00 P.M. pending on the availability of the meeting room.
Please refer to the event calendar to see what days classes are held.

The classes provided differ each month.
Classes are open to everyone but space is limited. Please register in advance in order to assure you can attend.

FAQs
Does the Library Provide Evening Classes?
We try to provide evening classes on Mondays pending on the availability of our meeting room. Please check our event calendar, newsletter, or this page for a listing of our monthly class schedule. Monday classes will always be in the form of a lecture.

If you wish to undergo a computer literacy workshop in the evening please consider visiting the database Learning Express Library for excellent tutorials on various computer literacy subjects that you may take at your own leisure.

Can I Have a One on One Class?
Due to the demand for computer classes, we do not offer them for one on one sessions. Please consider signing up for the classes provided. If, however, you have something specific you wish to learn please consider signing up for our Librarian By Appointment sessions.

You may also want to visit the database Learning Express Library for excellent tutorials on various computer literacy subjects that you may take at your own leisure.

Do I Need To Attend Each Class In a Set?
Classes are not framed around sets, and thus each class within a month may not relate or feed into another. You need only come to a class with a subject that pique your interest.
Do You Provide Any Advanced Classes?
Most of our classes train our patrons on basic computer literacy because this by in large is what our community demands, however, advanced subjects are provided if the demand is high enough.

Currently we provide the following subjects that can be considered advanced:

  • Introduction to HTML Code
  • Introduction to Microsoft Excel Formulas
Will the Library Provide a Workshop on iPads, Smart Phones, Photoshop, etc?
We can only provide a workshop with the equipment we have available to our patrons at the library. That means we cannot provide workshops on hardware or software that is not available in our computer lab, and this includes things like tablets and smart phones. However, we do cover these subjects occasionally through lectures and open houses.
Can I Request a Subject For a Future Class?
Absolutely, you may request a subject. If the subject is not a class that the library already provides a new class may be designed to cover the subject if the demand from the community is high enough.
