 Computer Classes


      We offer basic computer classes on Saturday mornings at 9:00. Darnell Johnson will start his class at 9:00 before the Library is open so he can give uninterrupted instruction. This is a 2-part class with basic computer the first week and Internet tips the second week. Each enrollee is expected to commit to 2 weeks of instruction and must take the first part before he/she is allowed to take the second part. For more information, call the Library at (334) 774-5480. We can accommodate 15 people, so get your name on the list early. Remember that we will only continue with the class if participation is such that we feel our time and effort is justified.
