Posted 1 year ago

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:

Computer Fundamentals, 1/15 at 6:30 PM or 1/17 at 9:30 AM: This introductory class will get you familiar with computers, using the mouse and keyboard, basic terminology, shutting down your computer correctly and more.
