The Bayonne Public Library continues to offer “Tech Thursdays” through October. The program began in April of this year and offers weekly valuable technology lessons to those in need each month.
Residents are free to attend one or all of the library’s Tech Thursdays classes. The classes meet each Thursday from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m.
According to the city, the classes aim to teach how to use the computer, navigate the internet, and how to set up and use a Gmail account. The classes are taught each week by Adult Services Librarian Bill Fischer.
On October 6, the basic computer class introduces students to the computer. The class will briefly discuss hardware and software, apps and files, security, and getting online. Students will learn how to use a mouse and keyboard to navigate the computer, and how to run programs. There are no prerequisites for this class.
There will be no class on October 13.
