Instruction

Computers are essential tools in our daily lives.  Without some fundamental skills and knowledge it can be frustrating and difficult to use computers.  Through training and practice computer skills can be learned.

To meet this need in our community, the Johnson City Public Library offers computer training sessions.  Classes range in subject from the very basics of computer use to more advanced applications.  Examples of previous classes include How to Use the Internet, Resume and Job Searching workshops, and Introduction to Social Media.  Classes are held in the Computer Center on the second floor of the library.  Upcoming classes will be posted on the library’s Events Calendar.
