Help people learn computer basics

Using computers, tablets or smartphones and accessing the internet is now vital to carrying out our day-to-day lives. Want to apply for a new job? Go online. Need to check your kid's homework assignment? Go online. Your doctor prescribed a new drug and you want to know more? Go online. Banking, classes, looking for housing--you get the idea.

If you are comfortable using computers, you can help your neighbors that are still on the other side of the "digital divide." Join the team as we teach fundamental computer skills at the three branches of the Salinas Public Library. Our curriculum takes nothing for granted, and gives people the skills and confidence they need so they can access the wealth of opportunities and resources online.

Classes are two hours each, twice a week, for ten week sessions. They are offered at all three branches of the Salinas Public Library, and in morning, afternoon, and evening slots. You can choose by branch or by time of day, and can start at any point during the class cycle.
