We are very excited to now offer new and expanded technology classes. The explosion in popularity of ebooks and other digital downloads has led to countless new possibilities, but those possibilities also lead to new questions and the need for new skill sets. Emmet O’Neal Library is eager to help you.
On the third and fourth Tuesdays of each month, sessions are available on borrowing library ebooks on Kindle, iPad and Nook devices; borrowing and downloading digital audiobooks; learning social media basics; and beginner classes in Microsoft Word and Excel. Registration is required, so call 445-1115 to reserve a spot.
For the ebook classes, participants are required to have with them a valid JCLC library card; an email address and password; and a Kindle (with Amazon ID and password), iPad (with Apple ID) or Nook (with its USB cable). For the digital
audiobook classes, participants are required to have with them a valid JCLC library card and an email address and password. The social media basics class requires an email address and password only if you would New Tech Tuesdays
like to set up a social media account during your appointment. If you just want to come and get an overview, you don’t need an email address. The Microsoft Word and Excel classes require participants to have basic computer experience and working knowledge of a keyboard and mouse.
If these requirements are still just a bit out of reach at this point, you may make a 15-, 30- or 45-minute appointment for personalized assistance. Don’t be afraid to ask us for help. We have lots of experience helping people get set up with new technology. We won’t set up your new technology for you, but we can help you learn the skills you need to be successful. Ready to get started? Call 445-1115 to get the jump on your new (or not so new) online life.
