Just the Basics (Free Computer Tutoring)
If you are interested in signing up or for more information contact Adult Services - 478-3987. This class is not designed to be able to help people who need help in maintaining their Windows Operating System, or who currently have any other "technical" problems on their home computer. The goal of this class is to help those patrons who may be intimidated by getting started on a computer, and that this will allow them to start using the computer resources here at the library. Our recent Universal Classes purchase has offerings to help with Microsoft programs such as Word (see top of page).
It's All About the Yarn
Grab your needles/hooks and don't forget the yarn. Dale Ann, our knitting/crocheting guru, will be on hand the second and fourth Wednesday during the months of May, June, July and August to get you stitching in no time. Beginners or experienced? No problem. Come to the Library between 2-4pm and bring your supplies. You can call the Library for more information (815-478-3987).
