The Winchell room will never be the same again! We are pleased to announce that after much planning and preparing we are unrolling a complete series of computer classes at the Manchester City Library! Regularly we will teach what we like to call “No Frills” computer skills. Still learning to use a mouse? Look for Basic Computer Skills I. Intro to the Internet is back, too! After two months off, this widely popular class returns with a new teacher on August 31st. That afternoon brings a great chance to sign up for your own email address and gain some practice with web searching. The class will meet at 1:30pm-3:00pm for a slow paced introduction to getting onto the internet. This class is geared towards beginners and will introduce you to basic Internet and email skills. Other future class offerings include a class on August 2nd about Facebook. Intro to Facebook will be from 6:30pm-7:30 and requires an email address to complete the class. So if you have experience with email and are interested in trying Facebook, please sign up. There will be a brief discussion of the Facebook privacy settings so you can be responsible and understand the benefits and risks of using Facebook. Another class offering will be on August 23rd. Come learn about the depth of research tools available to library patrons online. Learning about our databases with Ebsco will provide a great overview and introduction to the hundreds of research and reference tools available at your finger tips. Use the Novelist database for an amazing list of book suggestions. Access thousands of magazine articles, car repair manuals, academic journals, and information on history, genealogy, current events and business. Specialist Pam Erickson from Ebsco will be there to give you a genuine learning experience. Please preregister, bring your library card, and arrive early for this amazing 6:30pm-7:30pm class. See all of the amazing tools and try them out for yourself.

Manchester residents can now expect at least a couple of computer classes every month, year-round! All of these classes are scheduled to be downstairs in the Winchell Room. Call 624-6550 to register or sign up at using the library’s “Upcoming Events Calendar”. So if you or a friend or a family member needs some basic computer training sign up for one of our classes. We hope to see you at the library!
