Meet the Mouse at Blount County Public Library
Date: February 1, 2017 Time: 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
Event Description Basic computer classes are offered, free, at the library: Meet the Mouse: Introduction to Computer Use, Internet Searching, Email and Facebook. Registration is required for all classes by visiting the library’s Reference Desk or calling the library at (865) 273-1428 or (865) 982-0981, ext. 4. Registration for any class opens approximately one month before the class. Each of these one-time classes lasts approximately 90 minutes and is limited to an enrollment of 14 people, but students may take the classes more than once. These “Rookies” classes on Wednesdays are designed for computer users with little or no experience and will focus on very basic skills and techniques. During the Email and Facebook classes, students will be able to set up their first accounts for those services; the instructors recommend that students bring a mobile phone in order to complete the account process. Stay tuned for upcoming changes in these classes as they move to the library’s new Learning Lab. If a person desires to enroll in the Microsoft courses but has had no computer experience, the one-session, class of “Meet the Mouse” is a pre-requisite.
