MORRISTOWN, NJ - Looking to learn a little more about computers? Look no further than your local library. Libraries offer a variety of computer classes from the beginner level up to intermediate functions.
"Beginner classes typically teach “the very basics, starting with how to use a mouse and keyboard, to navigating a Windows desktop, how to access programs from your start menu, and ending with an Introduction to the Internet,” says Gracey Palmer, Morristown-Morris Township Library Reference Librarian.
At the Morristown & Morris Township Library, one of their popular technology programs is called “Cutting the Cable Cord.”
“This last session of ‘Cutting the Cable Cord’ was extremely popular, and was more of a lecture, so I hope to have it again and move it to our meeting room to allow for more attendees.”
The Morristown & Morris Township Library also offers a program called “Tech Time.” “Tech Time” offers a 1-on-1 session that patrons can schedule with Stephen Brunskill, Reference Librarian. “Tech Time” offers patrons help with everything IT-related, from a malfunctioning computer to setting up an email account.
Stephen Brunskill, Reference Librarian, stated that, “I’ve always had a quick mind when it comes to technology, and that insight may help me reconcile the patron’s inquiry with a simple phone call. Finding the specific issue is the key to all of this, since time is of the essence. Getting that ‘a-ha’ or ‘oh-h-h’ moment when someone finally ‘gets it’ is reward enough for me!”
