During one of my regular drop-in visits to our beloved local library, I learned that library volunteer Marilyn McKinnon had set up the original support group as an ideal learning resource to acquaint fledgling users, just over a year ago.
Since then, staff members or their associated company of library volunteers, are happy to introduce interested users to the basic ins and outs of using an iPod which is quickly catching on in popularity.
Bring your personally owned iPod to the library or borrow one from the library’s inventory of equipment for use while you are there. Just be prepared to enjoy a “meeting of the minds” and have fun with others interested in expanding their computer skills through this form of social and educational opportunity.
Sign up to participate in the Tech Tuesday for Seniors, a series of four workshops to start on May 27 running from 10 a.m. to noon at the Nakusp Computer Access Centre (CAP).
This will be a new introduction or a refresher series to others based on improving your computer skills including learning to use Facebook, how to shop online and other topics which will prove useful to most of us.
A second but independent series of four workshops entitled “Working with Photos and Developing a Creative Photo Album”, begins May 28 also held at the CAP Centre.
Both series are offered free of charge, but it is recommended that you sign up to ensure you will have access to one of the CAP computers.
Drop-ins for any of these sessions are welcome.
