Internet for Beginners and Intermediates

The Internet is not going away! If you are yet to get a handle on it, and are still wondering what it is and how it works, here is an opportunity for you. "Internet for Beginners" is a free hour and a half workshop on Saturday, October 23 in the Library's free 1 1/2 hour session. The workshop is for you even if you haven't used computers before. It starts at 9 AM and runs until about 10:30 AM. It is a hands-on session and those in the class will explore some web sites, take a quick look at Google, for finding appropriate web sites, and perhaps have time to look at the basics of email and even set up a free email account! This is a great chance to ask questions and learn from the instructor and your fellow students. Please register in advance so that we will know the size of the class.

The Library will offer another class a month later, called "Internet: Beyond the Basics". You might think of it as a follow-up to "Internet for Beginners", though it is open to anyone who has worked with the Internet, but feels they still have a ways to go before they really understand it. In this class, we'll assume that you already have a basic understanding of how to navigate the World Wide Web. You will be introduced to some basic shortcuts and strategies that will make your Internet sessions go more smoothly. This class will be held on Saturday, November 20 at 9:00 AM, and once again, you will need to register in advance. Please call (626) 300-0777 to register for one or both of these sessions.
