Does someone you know have problems with basic computer applications? Or, are you yourself looking for help when navigating the latest web programs? If so, the Berwyn Public Library has the solution for you.
Throughout the year, the Outreach Department of the Berwyn Public Library offers Computer Tutoring sessions for adults who struggle to keep up with the latest changes in computer technology and have questions about using software and social media programs.
The service focuses on what it calls “self-guided study,” in which patrons can come to the library and work on the proficiency skills they wish to develop alongside the assistance of a computer instructor. The tutoring program caters especially to first-time computer users, who wish to practice typing, sending emails, and utilizing the Microsoft Office 2010 programs. The service also works with people who may have basic computer skills but are seeking to brush up on using the latest online networks, including the popular Facebook.
People of all ages are welcome to attend, and are able to bring either their own personal laptop or use computers provided by the library.
The next computer tutoring sessions will be held on Nov. 28 and 29 at 10 a.m., Dec. 4 at 7 p.m., and Dec. 5 and 6 at 10 a.m.
Seating at the tutoring sessions are limited, and those who wish to attend the program are highly encouraged to register ahead of time. For more information on computer tutoring, patrons can contact the Berwyn Public Library at (708) 795-8000.
