Is your computer sitting the corner collecting dust? Technology Specialist Ben Crouch is here to help you become more comfortable and familiar with your computer so you can use it as an asset, rather than a paperweight. Classes are designed to be user friendly and hands-on, so you can gain the tools you need to stay safe and secure on your computer, and eventually begin to use it as a tool to make your life easier.

This is a four part series. If you would like to attend all four, you must register for each class separately.  All classes begin at 10:30 a.m. in the library meeting room and last one hour.  Registration is required.

Bring your laptop computer if you can, but this is not required. However, computers will not be provided for this workshop.  If you do bring your laptop, please have a full charge on the battery, as there are no charging areas in the meeting room.
