Riverbank Library is working to address community needs by offering instruction on the basics of navigating computers and the Internet.

Starting this month, community members interested in improving their computer skills will have an opportunity to do so at the Riverbank Library. Individuals can enroll in free workshops designed to help them learn to navigate computers and the Internet.

Computer Basics classes will be offered on Thursdays, Aug. 9 and Sept. 6 at 10:30 a.m. This class will offer a basic introduction to computers, including an explanation of the parts of a computer, a tour of Microsoft Windows, and simple tasks. Instruction is available in both English and Spanish.

Internet Basics classes will be held on Thursdays, Aug. 23 and Sept. 20 at 10:30 a.m. The workshop will introduce participants to the Internet and the World Wide Web, with instruction on how to search on the web.

“We've had many customers request basic computer classes. We think seniors especially would benefit from them,” said Victoria Holt, Riverbank Library supervisor. “Verbal bilingual instruction will be available during this class, as needed.”

Advance registration is required for all computer classes. Space is limited. For more information or to sign up, call the Riverbank Library at 209-869-7008.
