Computer Club For Beginners

Beginners workshops are comfortably paced for the novice computer user. Students learn how to use the mouse and keyboard, navigate through Microsoft Windows, search the Internet, and set up and use Email.


Advancing on the Internet

This set of workshops builds on the Library's long-running "Computer Club for Beginners" class. To take this class, you should have a good understanding of how to use a personal computer, the basics of Microsoft Windows, and how to do a basic search on the Internet. If you've taken our "Computer Club for Beginners," you are ready for this class. Among other skills, we will explore how search engines can be used to find Internet-based information of all kinds, and we'll explore in detail advanced searching using Google's specialized features. We will also spend time exploring the Library's extensive suite of digital information resources, learning how to search within commercial and special databases. One of the exciting features of the class will be information "treasure hunts," low-keyed searches through cyberspace for fun information. We will also discuss streaming and downloading of information, accessing the Cloud, and current information on Internet service providers and online safety.
