We’re hosting seven free computer classes this January at our Main Branch—everything from the most basic introduction to computers to classes about Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Publisher.

We’re also offering tutorials this month that will teach you how to use eReaders, tablets, and computers to check out library eBooks, stream audiobooks and even watch movies (depending on what kind of device you use) from home.
All of the classes are free. However, registration is required; and, because space is limited, you’ll want to sign up as soon as possible. Registration begins Jan. 9 for all the classes. You can sign up by calling (440) 255-8811 ext. 216.
If you need one-on-one help for your tablet, laptop, or smartphone, you can get personal device advice from 10 to 11 a.m. and 1 to 2 p.m. every Thursday this month at our Lake Branch. Please call 440-257-2512 to register ahead of time.
Additionally, your Mentor Public Library gives you free access to dozens of free online computer classes via Gale Courses. Learn everything from computer basics to advanced techniques for Microsoft, Adobe, Photoshop, and other applications from the convenience of your own computer.
