OAKHURST — Does the idea of turning on a computer send a chill down your spine, or maybe setting a password makes you want to pass out? Take heart: beginning Wednesday, May 2, the Oakhurst Branch Library will once again offer a free basic computer skills class, and members of the community are invited to sign up now.
It’s basically “Computer 101,” says Oakhurst Library Branch Manager Dale Rushing.
According to Rushing, some of the basics include how to turn on a computer, set up an email account, create a password and user name, and search the Internet.
Taught by area resident and library volunteer Jill Flanagan, who has worked for 40 years in professional office environments, the class is scheduled from 9 to 10 a.m. weekly, for six weeks.
Space is limited to six, so participants will want to sign up at the library to guarantee a seat. Only library computers will be used in the class. No personal computers will be used.
The library is located at 49044 Civic Circle Drive in Oakhurst.
This free class is sponsored by the Friends of the Oakhurst Branch Library. For more information, call (559) 683-4838 or visit www.oakhurstfobl.com.
