Computer Training

Our computer classes give you new freedoms!

Build Your Skills Today for the Needs of Tomorrow

With technology growing at such a high rate, computer skills are an important trait to acquire. Helpful for:

  • Employment
  • Keeping in touch with loved ones
  • Creating digital gifts (photo/video collages, or t-shirts)
  • Tracing your family tree
  • ...or selling things online for a profit

There are many reasons to enroll in a class to learn a new skill, brush up on some old ones, or just because you can (and it's FREE!). All of our classes are offered to anyone 16 years of age or older. Younger students may seek out the Teen Librarians for class offerings. Students with disabilities may register for any computer course if a volunteer assistant is available. Please contact the instructor for details.

Our classes feature some of today's most popular software and topics, (simple through advanced topics):

  • Microsoft Office 2010
    • Access
    • Excel
    • Powerpoint
    • Publisher
    • Word
  • Adobe Photoshop Elements 10
  • Internet Safety and Computer Basics
  • eBay (and Craigslist)
  • Genealogy
  • Digital Cameras
  • ...and much, much more...

Take a look at our current list of classes and see if there's anything interesting. You can also contact our Computer Training Specialist at any time if you have any questions.


Phone registration only. Anyone 16 years of age or older may call to register. Please call instructor Kathy Handy and leave a message at 518-584-7860 x257. Classes are held in the Library Computer Lab on Microsoft Windows computers using Windows 7. First come, first served.

You may sign up for one or more courses provided they are not the same course title. You may only register members of your immediate family. If the course you want is full, there may be another class of the same title offered during the same registration period; have a second choice in mind at the time of registration. Also, we will put people on a waiting list, but only for the current registration period.
