Computer Club: Technology Travelers

imagesa

Do you feel left out when people begin talking about Facebook, or social networking, Internet, emails and Pinterest? Would you like to become part of the 21st century? Then join our computer club. It meets on Thursday mornings from 10am -11am. This club is basically for all the newcomers to technology; so don’t feel intimidated if you don’t know how to access any of these sites. Come in and learn with others who want to become computer literate. It should be a fun group with no pressure, just some exposure to all of these new things that are around for us to see. This, however, is also a club where those knowledgeable in technology might want to come by and share their knowledge with others. You can join any time. Just come by the library at 10:00am on Thursdays. The library is closed, so just knock with your keys on the door and we will let you in.

ADDITION TO THE COMPUTER CLUB
The second hour from 11:00-12:00 pm will focus on specific topics.
April 3rd: LinkedIn
April 10th: Google/Gmail
April 17th: Facebook
April 24th: Twitter
