Computer Classes

Individual Appointments

A 30-minute appointment session starts with calling your branch. The sessions are for a limited lesson and do not take the place of a full class. Individual appointments help with basic computer use, library online resources, and selected questions. Please see the class list below.

Staff can coach you to set up an email, use job search tools, and online applications. We can show you how, but you must do the work. You may bring someone to assist with typing needs.

Please tell us what you need so that we know how to best serve you!
