Get Started using Computers, the Internet, Email and Social Media

Do you know someone who could use a little help getting started using a computer?  Our beginner-level Computer Classes are very popular because they start at the beginning, are free and are offered in a variety of locations and at a variety of times.  Registration has begun for our fall classes and space is still available. Please feel free to call us at 519-661-4600 to find out more or talk to staff at your library location.

Registration is required for each class. You may register for each class up to 2 weeks in advance.  You may take any class more than once (many people do so). We offer these classes on an ongoing basis and at a variety of locations.  All classes are free.

All classes are 2 hours in length with a 10 minute break. Classes are taught on the Library's Windows-based computers. You are not able to use your own laptop or device for these classes and these are not permitted in class.
