Open Lab Tomorrow

dscn1821There will be an open lab for practice, questions, and troubleshooting on Friday, October 7, 2:00-4:00pm. Participants can use library-provided laptops and tablets to practice their skills and become familiar with different devices. Knowledgeable library staff and volunteers will be available to answer questions. Participants can also bring their own laptops or mobile devices for troubleshooting help. We’re always pleased to show you how to borrow e-books and downloadable audiobooks from the library, too!

Helping more people gain access to technology is an important way to contribute to economic development, education, and community engagement in Grant County. We are pleased to partner again with Adult Education Services, whose director is leading workshops on basic technology topics here at the library. Our organizations share many of the same goals, like offering learning opportunities for job-seekers to boost their skills and entrepreneurs to harness the benefits of technology. The upcoming workshops are as follows:

  • Microsoft Word, Friday, October 14, 2:00-4:00pm: how to use templates and ribbon functions
  • Microsoft Excel, Thursday, October 20, 10:00am-12:00pm: How to use Excel for personal and business accounting
  • Microsoft PowerPoint, November 10, 2016, 10:00am to 12:00pm: How to make a slideshow or presentation
  • Online employability skills, November 18, 2016, 2:00 to 4:00pm: How to use the internet for job searching and application completion
