Palmerton library offers computer classes for seniors
The Palmerton Area Library, 402 Delaware Ave., Palmerton, will again offer computer classes for seniors.
Instructors will demonstrate the ins and outs of personal computers using simplified terms, examples, pictures and videos actually described in easy-to-understand English.
The following sessions will cover every area necessary to turn your computer from a $1,000 paperweight to a valuable tool for productivity, communication, business, entertainment and more.
Beginners Workshop in September will cover computer basics, introduction to the Internet, introduction to email and word processing.
This session is for those with no computer experience.
Basic Camera Operation and Photo Editing in October will cover the basic operation of a digital camera.
You will learn how to acquire photos from your digital camera, import them, save them and send them to others.
You will also learn how to improve poor photos, apply special effects and print them.
Microsoft Office in November will cover word processing and spreadsheets including Word and Excel.
You will learn how to create a flyer, newsletter and merge documents, work with tables, charts and spreadsheets.
Websites and Online Tools in December will teach you all about social networking. Learn about Facebook, Skype, Pinterest and more.
All of the library classes are taught on Thursdays from 5-7 p.m. when the library is closed so that class members have full use of the library computers.
If you have your own laptop, you may bring that to class to use.
Class size is limited so register early. The first class will begin Sept. 12.
