Keeping connected to the online world is as simple as a trip to Airdrie Public Library (APL).
One of APLís priorities is to provide Internet access to all, in an effort to support the concept of a technologically skilled community whose members are comfortable and effective in using the online world to support their needs.
To that end, the library not only offers high-speed access to the digital world; we also provide a variety of technology training through both group classes and one-on-one technology tutoring Ė all for free!
In February, Computer Basics Ė a free-of-charge four-week course that runs Feb. 6 to 27 Ė will help participants become comfortable with a computer, from using the mouse and the keyboard to navigating the Internet. The classes run Wednesdays, 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Registration and a library card are necessary. In March, E-Book Basics will offer tips on setting up an e-reader or mobile device; downloading e-books for free and buying them. Basic computer and Internet skills are prerequisites for the four week course, which runs March 6 to 27, Wednesdays, 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. The course is free.
Half-hour Technology Tutoring appointments are available Tuesdays, 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. and Thursdays, 7 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. APLís experts will be able to assist with Microsoft Office, email, Kurzweil software, Macs and more. A library card is required to make an appointment.
