Computer Training is back!

Do you feel that you are behind the times with computers? (or do you know someone who is?) This Winter/Spring, SPL is offering a number of computer classes to help you become more comfortable using your computer and the Internet.  Classes are hands on and limited to 6 people. Participants receive a manual that they can take home for future reference.  There is a nominal fee for the classes.

Classes are run by Krista Robinson, Information Technology Development Librarian. Krista has been running computer classes at the library for almost 10 years.
