How can I learn computer skills?

Does the library hold computer workshops or classes?


Answer

We no longer offer workshops, but we are offering these resources:

Library databases and help

  1. an outline of concepts and terms with some exercises
  2. learning paths using LinkedIn Learning for Library tutorials, available with a library card
  3. a "playlist" (mostly books) on O'Reilly for Public Libraries supporting computer literacy, including security and privacy; available with a library card
  4. Microsoft Office tutorials in the Peterson's Test and Career Prep database; go to Home → Improve Your Score → Foundational Skills and then scroll down looking for Microsoft Office tutorials
  5. an appointment for help with a specific skill that you need
