The Library offers free computer classes for those who need a skills brush-up or who have had minimal experience with technology. If you are looking for assistance with an e-reader or Overdrive, visit our Downloads page.
Computer Class Schedule
The Library offers an ongoing series of introductory technology-based classes. These classes are designed to introduce the community to current technology, as well as introduce job seekers to basic, entry-level computer skills. Unless noted, all classes meet in the basement training room at Main. On occasion, our classes will be taught by Western Tech students, with supervision from Library staff.
Due to popular demand, classes require advanced registration. Call 608-789-7122 or stop by the Reference Desk (2nd floor at Main) to register or pick up a schedule.
