Registration Open: Adult Computer Classes

Filed In:

The Kinderhook Library is now accepting adult registrations for our Fall series of Basic Computer Skills Classes. The classes will take place on Tuesday afternoons at 2p.m., from September 30 to November 4. The sessions are designed for patrons with little or no computer experience. We will cover a variety of topics, including: how to operate a desktop computer, manage computer files, browse the internet, create an email account, and utilize Microsoft Word. We will give preference to Kinderhook and Stuyvesant residents, but will keep a waiting list for those who don't live in the immediate area. The classes are limited to 6 participants, and a Mid-Hudson LIbrary System card is required. For more information or to register, please call the library at 758-6192.
