Registration Open for May Computer Classes

Computer ClassesThe Regional Library Computer Center May 2013 computer class schedule is now available, and registration is open to the public for the free courses. Please note that class times have been changed to 10:30 am – 12:30 pm.

This month, we are teaching programs from the Apache OpenOffice.org suite.

It can rival the older versions of Microsoft Office and can be downloaded and used for any purpose completely free of charge.
