Two Computer Classes to Begin Thursdays at the Calais Free Library

For anyone who isn’t already a super whizz on computers, for the next five Thursdays, the Calais Free Library is the place to be!  For the beginner, or those who can always appreciate a few more hints and helps, Basic Computer helps you have a much more complete and practical knowledge of how to get the best from your computer.  Computers are used in work, education, and home settings, and this course will cover the key computer components, Windows operating system, desktop skills, the internet, and internet skills.  Even a second time taking the class, this writer was still learning and solidifying useful knowledge and techniques.  This class runs from  10:30 a.m. to 12 noon.

The second course, from 6 to 7:30 p.m., is Introduction to Google Tools and covers way more than just how to find the definition of a word, check on historic facts, or find a company that sells what you want.  With Google Tools, you can browse the internet, market your business, access other media (books, music, images, and video), explore your world with Google Earth or find your way with Google Maps, create customized searches, get social with Google+ and Hangouts, and create a home or office working environment with Gmail, Drive, Calendar, Docs, Sheets, Forms, and Sites.  This class will introduce you to Google tools and Apps and get you up and running by creating a Google account, getting started on Google Drive, learning how to create Google Docs, and upload and manage files on Google Drive.

Both classes (Oct. 20 & 27 & Nov. 3, 10, & 27) will be taught by Sharon Foss who is a very helpful, responsive, and experienced instructor.  The cost is $20 for either class.  To register, go to or call Sharon at 207-255-4917.
