Taking computer classes at the library
We hold our computer classes in the 4th floor Forum. Most of our classes last one hour to ninety minutes. They're designed to be hands-on and last for one session. Feel free to repeat a class to improve your skils.
Occassionaly our classes require you to have a basic set of skills before you show up. Other classes ask you to sign up for a particular service ahead of time. We try to make it clear when this is the case. Following these prereqs ensures that you get the most of your time in the class.
