Twitter Status: Stillwater Public Library releases its fall computer class schedule #stwok

(STILLWATER, OKLA. / Sept. 12, 2012) – Whether it’s the basic steps of computer use or more intermediate topics like handling viruses and building formulas in spreadsheets, the Stillwater Public Library’s fall computer class schedule includes a bit of it all.

“One of our most important purposes is to offer community members the technology and skills to help them succeed,” said Lynda Reynolds, library director.  “In the past, we  focused  on beginning computer students, but now we want to help our former beginners make it to the next step with a bit of focus on mobile technology and slightly more advanced skills.”

The library’s classes, which are free and open to the public, will be taught by librarians and qualified volunteers in the library’s new computer lab provided by the OK Connect grant.  Most classes will last one and a half to three hours.  Information about pursuing continuing education on each topic will be provided at each class.

“Meridian Technology Center is partnering with us on additional short-term computer classes,” said Reynolds.  “They have a comprehensive array of moderately priced classes for students at all levels.  Through this partnership, the library will be able to provide instruction in several different areas and then give students discounted referrals to their next learning step at Meridian Technology Center.”

Registration is online at http://library.stillwater.org/computer.htm for the library classes listed below.  Each class will describe what will be learned and what skills are required to enroll.  The classes include:
