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.
We're excited to bring our popular classes to the Neighborhood Centers in 2020. These will be lighter, shorter classes than what we offer at the library. If you'd like to spend more time going over your questions, or can't make these dates, please call the Library to set up a free appointment at 608-789-7122.
To register for these classes, call the Black River Beach Neighborhood Center (BRBNC) at 608-789-8640 or call the South Side Neighborhood Center (SSNC) at 608-789-8298.
