Library to host beginner computer literacy training class


MIO — The Oscoda County Library is offering free classes that will teach residents how to better utilize computers and their software.

The classes will be held every Tuesday starting Jan. 8 at the Mio branch of the county library system. The classes are one hour long and will begin at 1 p.m. They will run for six weeks, with the last one being Feb. 12.

Class organizer Beth Barron said the idea has been brewing at the library for some time, and now seemed the best time to get it started.

“We get quite a few patrons who don’t know how to utilize a computer,” Barron said. “We decided to host the class to help teach them the basics.”

Barron said the classes will begin with the most basic information required to use a computer, touching on how to use a mouse, how to use a word processor and how to use a web browser. The classes will also focus on how to use smartphones and tablets.

Computers will be available to those who take the class, but residents are encouraged to bring their own laptops as well. The library asks that residents bring their own tablets and smartphones to use during that portion of the class.

It is not required that participants register for the class, but for more information contact the library at 989-826-3613.
