The Dundee Public Library will be looking to renew a program once again, with the start of basic Computer Classes being held at the Library. The goal of this objective will be to teach any interested patrons in learning the basics behind the use of a laptop , desktop computer as well as handheld devices such as a smart-phone or tablet . Also as part of these classes we would be looking to educate the participants in the safety protocols of using these devices , because of the ever-growing threat of cyber-crime and the threat posed by fraud if your personal information falls into the wrong hands, hackers who troll the internet with the view of causing immeasurable harm to their victims.
If you are interested in signing up for these classes then simply inform a staff member of the Dundee Library of your intent and you will be registered for the class . In anticipation of the numbers we would then set a date for the class to commence with the possibility of holding one if not two classes a week , with a duration of not more than one hour per lesson. Classes would be taught by resident library volunteer Alan Parkins and would be free of charge.
Please not the Dundee Public Library will be closing at 12:00 pm on Friday 30th March and will not reopen until Monday 2nd April at 10:00 am, with our usual hours of operation being applicable. The staff looks forward to seeing all of our returning patrons next month, while being able to meet all of your needs.
