The Library is now offering FREE computer classes!

Do you have an interest in learning how to use computers but don’t know where to begin? Then we have a class for you! The Manchester Public Library will begin offering free computer classes for the public in November. Classes include Computer Basics, Internet Basics, and E-mail.

The Computer Basics class is a hands-on class giving an introduction to the parts of the computer and how to use them.  This class is designed for people with no computer experience or very little computer experience, so don’t hesitate to sign up if you fall in one of these categories.  Everyone in the class will be a beginner.

If you are interested in learning how to use the Internet, then Internet Basics may be the class for you.  This class will be most helpful to those who know how to use a computer mouse but have little or no experience using the Internet, or those who have just taken the Computer Basics class.  By the time this class is finished, you will know how to access the Internet, go to websites, search on the Internet, and more! 

If you would like to get a free e-mail account and learn how to use it, then the E-mail class is for you.  During this class we will go step-by-step through the process of setting up a free e-mail account on the web.  You will also learn how to send and receive messages using your new e-mail.   

Each class will be approximately 1 hour in length and will be offered in an afternoon and during the evening to accommodate different schedules.  Computer Basics is being held on Thursday, November 10 at 6:00 p.m. and Monday, November 14 at 2:00 p.m.  Internet Basics is scheduled for Thursday, November 17 at 6:00 p.m. and Tuesday, November 22 at 2:00 p.m.  E-mail will be on Tuesday, November 29 at 2:00 p.m. and Thursday, December 1 at 6:00 p.m.  Please call the Library at 927-3719 to register as seating is limited.  The equipment for the classes was purchased with a grant from the Foundation for the Future of Delaware County.
