Computer Basics Classes

Working in the Business and Job Center, I meet someone every day who tells me “I don’t know anything about computers.”  My usual response to this statement is to tell them it is never too late to learn and that the library offers a variety of free computer classes each month, either here at Richland Library Main or at a Richaland Library branch location.

Classes range from learning how to use the mouse to creating flyers and newsletters.  No matter what your skill level, the library has a class for you! Dates and times of computers classes are listed in our Richland Library Access Magazine, on the library website or here at Main, you can ask us for a computer class handout. Registration for the Introduction to Computers I and II classes taught here at Richland Library Main can be done by calling 929-3457. For other classes, we ask that your register online at www.richlandlibrary.com. Please note you will need an email address to complete online registration.
