Looking to take some free beginner computer classes? The Fall River Public Library has you covered.
The library at 104 North Main Street will offer a series of beginning computer classes for adults in July and August. The four-part workshop, Computer Basics, will run on Tuesday afternoons from 1:00-2:30 p.m. from July 17th through August 7th, and on Thursday evenings from 6:00-7:30 p.m. from July 19th through August 9th, in the library’s meeting room. The classes are designed for adult learners with little to no computer experience, or those who need a refresher in the basics.
Each week will cover a different topic, starting with the basics of getting around on a computer and progressing to internet safety. Five laptops will be available for people to use, or people can bring their own laptop if they have one. Total class size is limited to 10 (5 people with their own computers, and 5 people without).
Week 1– July 17 / July 19: Computer basics – keyboard and mouse.
Week 2 — July 24 / July 26: Internet searching and databases.
Week 3 — July 31 / August 2: Setting up an email account.
Week 4 — August 7 / August 9: Internet safety and security.
Registration is required. All classes are free. Please call the circulation desk at 508-324-2700, ext. 2, to sign up, and let staff know if you will need a laptop.
