Tech Tuesdays

Master a new program or piece of technology every month with the library’s Tech Tuesdays!

We offer sessions taught by a technology expert on everything from computer basics to Gmail.  Each Tech Tuesday is designed with YOU in mind!  We’ll teach you the basics of a program during the first session and find out exactly what you want to learn.  The second session is then tailored to your specific needs!  You’ll leave each class feeling confident and empowered!
