Free Computer Class at the Monroe Library

Recently I had the opportunity to work with three of Monroe Library's Tech Teen Volunteers as we team taught the Beginning Catalog and Internet Computer Class. Pictured starting on the left, back row: Tech Teens Florence, Zulqurnain, and Sohaib; front row: student Marilou. The Tech Teens help teach the class and provide one-on-one help to the adult students.
This is a free class for adults who want to learn how to use the Sno-Isle Libraries catalog, and databases, as well learn about searching the Internet and setting up a free email account. Students come to the class for various reasons including: wanting an email account to connect with family and friends, learning how to use the Sno-Isle catalog and databases, and wanting to aquire skills to search online resources for employment. In 2009 about 50% of the participants in the class are seeking skills to search employment resources, which is an increase over past years.

Upcoming classes: Saturday October 17th 10am-11:30am and Saturday November 7th 10am-11:30am. Please register at the Information desk or call 360-794-7851. Hope to see you there!
