Technology Classes


2018 Updated Technology Classes

 

Your Rowan County Public Library offers a range of technology classes that cater to your skill level and learning goals.

Classes are free and open to the public.  Laptops are provided; however, students are encouraged to bring their own laptops or devices with them to class in order to address any questions that they may have regarding those devices.

Wednesdays are an open forum where the RCPL Technology Staff field questions regarding personal computers or devices, using individual requests or inquiries as group learning opportunities. Both Apple and Android products are welcome!

Various lessons and instructional power points can be found on the Class Resources Page. You can also use the Kentucky Virtual Library to access the Learning Express Computer Skills Center, even at home! If you don’t have the current login and password for KYVL, ask at the front circulation desk or call during our operating hours to request them.
