Computer Classes

Digital Literacy classes are available in English and Spanish. Our free classes introduce students to the Internet and Microsoft Word, as well as teach essential life skills like financial management and job readiness. Classes are instructor led with discussions, demonstrations, hands-on activities and personal practice time. Students who attend all five classes will receive a certificate celebrating their work.

Computer classes are generally offered in English on Saturdays at 1:15pm and 3:15pm, and in Spanish on Sundays at 1:15pm and 3:15pm.

Classes are for adults only. Children are not allowed in the computer labs during class time. Registration is required and on a first come, first served basis. Individuals may register in person at the reference desk or by calling the library at 847-775-2547.
