OAKHURST — Want to tackle some simple technology but not sure just how to jump in? Beginning Wednesday, Sept. 20, the Oakhurst Branch Library will be offering a basic computer skills class. It’s scheduled from 9 – 10 a.m. weekly on Wednesdays until Oct. 25, at the library located at at 49044 Civic Circle Dr., Oakhurst.
The class will be taught by volunteer Jill Flanagan, who has worked for 40 years in professional office environments.
“Essentially, she will be teaching basic computer 101,” says Oakhurst Library Branch Manager Dale Rushing.
According to Rushing, some of those “basics” include how to turn on a computer, set up an email account, create a password and user name and search the Internet. Space in the class is limited to six, so people need to sign up at the library before the class begins, Rushing notes.
Flanagan, who is semi-retired, hails from Southern California where she was born and lived and worked most of her life. She recently followed family to the area and now resides in the foothills.
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.
