Internet Basics Classes

Thursday, February 23 at 6pm

This three-week workshop will teach you about the basics of using the internet. You’ll learn about browsers, search engines, and email. Katherine will show you the basics and take your questions. Although this class focuses on internet skills, a lot of what we will be discussing will give you a good foundation for using any aspect of a computer.

Space is limited – the library will provide laptops for the class. It’s recommended, but not necessary, that you sign up for all three classes. Stop by or call (401) 647-5133 to register.

If you are interested, but not sure you know enough about computers to participate, get in touch with Katherine. I’m available Monday-Thursday after 3pm.

Game Night: Ticket to Ride

Wednesday, March 22 at 6 pm

Adult Game Night is an attempt to get adults interested in gaming, again! We associate playing games with kids, but adults need to play just as much as younger folks, maybe more. It is a great way to relax after a long day, a social, relaxing activity to take your mind off your troubles. So—come and play Ticket to Ride with Katherine on Game Night! Ticket to Ride is a set collecting game, in which you try to collect a number of train routes across North America. To win, you have to balance greedily collecting cards with actually setting reasonable goals.

This event is aimed towards adults, but if children over the age of 8 are interested, they can come, too. And convince their parents to come play, because we should all be playing more games!!
