Computers for Chickens: Starting From Scratch Class June 18
06/15/2012 - The Fairview Public Library in Margaretville will offer a free class, "Computers for Chickens: Computer Basics Starting from Scratch". The class is for adult beginning computer users and it will cover concepts: what is a computer, how does a computer work, computer parts and vocabulary. The library is also conducting a survey to ascertain computer skills and interests in order to plan future classes that fit the needs and interests of people in the community. The initial class will be conducted by Marc Osterweil, a Trustee of the library who is a retired computer programmer.
The class will be held on Monday, June 18 at noon to 1:30 p.m. and repeated that evening at 6 p.m. -7:30 p.m. Anyone interested is asked to sign up for the class at the library or by calling the library at 586-3791. Also, anyone interested in helping plan future computer classes is urged to complete the questionnaire available at the library's circulation desk. Volunteers who might help with future classes and labs are also encouraged to contact the library during regular library hours. Fairview Public library has three computers for public use and is a WiFi hotspot. Although the library's web site is in development, information about library happenings can be found on Facebook.
