When computer classes at the North Platte Public Library resume January 15th, attendees will be using new Windows 7 laptop computers in the library’s meeting room. The library received these computers through the Library Broadband Builds Nebraska Communities grant program. The new venue will keep class distractions to a minimum and keep all of the technology learning center’s computers available for use during class time.
Classes will be two hours in length and cost $10 per person. Take-home handouts will be provided. Pre-registration is required to attend. Those interested can call the library at 535-8036 for more information and to register for classes. Class schedule is below:
