HCTPL offering two new help sessions

Posted: Friday, January 31, 2020

Huntington City-Township Public Library will be offering two new series of free technology help sessions to teens and adults at its Huntington and Markle libraries.

The drop-in technology help sessions will be offered 2 to 5 p.m. the fourth Tuesday of every month at the Huntington Main Library, beginning February 25. Library staff will be available to help with whatever technology is brought by attendees, and will share information about library electronic resources such as eBooks, eAudiobooks and digital magazines. These workshops do not require registration.

Also at the Huntington Library, a new series of themed computer learning sessions will be offered at 6 p.m. on the first Tuesday of each month from February through May. Library staff will be on hand February 4 to help with computer basics and again on March 3 for Internet basics.

On April 7, library staff will demonstrate how to respond to the 2020 Census online. Discussion topics will include what information will be requested from citizens, the privacy protections for Census information and the importance of individual participation. This class will also take place at the Markle Branch Library April 1 at 6 p.m.

On May 5, library staff will offer training on creating a Google account and using applications such as Gmail, Calendar, Docs, Sheets, Photos and Drive. Attendees should bring your text-capable phones, if available, to make it easier to access accounts from library computers. This is an introductory program that assumes some basic computer knowledge. This class will also take place at the Markle Branch Library May 6 at 6 p.m.

Due to limited available computers, these sessions require registration; to sign up, contact the Reference Desk at (260) 356-0824. All of these programs are free.
