You Can Teach a Senior to Use the Computer
July 30, 2010
Do you find yourself out of the loop with everything being done now on the computer? Are you a senior adult who still wants to learn and keep up with the times? How about taking an introductory class on how to the use the computer at the Raytown Branch on Thursday mornings 9-12?
If you need help, we will first make sure you know how to use the mouse. Then we will move on to other parts of the computer. We will also teach how to find books on the card catalog. Yes, it is on the computer now too!
We can even help you set up an email address so you can email your family and friends. And if you want to search the internet for interesting websites for recipes, quilt patterns, or information on a disease we will help with that too.
This is a one hour class and we gear it to what you want to learn. You will learn side by side with a library staff member (who is not a computer whiz) as you sit at a computer.
The only requirement is an MCPL library card to access the computer. So if you know any senior adults who want to get started learning the computer, suggest they try a beginning computer class at the Raytown library.Tags: events, computers
