April 2024 single pages

Have you wanted to know more about navigating a computer and the Internet; wanted to figure out how to set up an email and retrieve it again; or simply wanted to write a document and save it? All of these subjects and more will be addressed in our 60+ digital literacy classes designed to guide participants through real-world hands on learning examples. This learning opportunity for those age 60 and over and is done in cooperation with Marion County Council on Aging. Classes will begin in May. Participants will pick one of two times of the day for the 6 weekly sessions. Classes will be limited to 10 students. The first set will be offered starting in the beginning of May with registration starting April 1. Stop by and pick up a flyer detailing the classes and when to register. Classes will also be listed on our website at MarionLibrary.org/digitalliteracy THE ECLIPSE IS COMING! Libary closed April 6 & 8 Many people will be distracted, and the community is sure to be overwhelmed with the influx of visitors on the weekend leading up to the Total Solar Eclipse on April 8. Thus, the Library Board voted to close the Library on Saturday, April 6 and on eclipse day, Monday, April 8. Hours should return to normal on Tuesday, April 9, but please check our social media channels for any last minute changes to the plan.
