Do computers intimidate you? This is a great class for beginners. It’s a hands-on, relaxed course that will help you get comfortable with computers, even if you’ve never used one before.

By the end of the course, you will be ready to explore on your own. Registration is required to participate, but you do not have to attend all four classes – feel free to try the first before thinking about the rest. Registration for each class begins September 5.

If you have any questions, you can call (413) 263-6828 ext. 213 to talk to a reference librarian. We can help you register for one of our classes or figure out where to start!
