The Main Library offers Technology Topics, a series of computer classes for all levels of expertise, in the spring and fall each year. Core offerings include hands-on classes in Microsoft Office 2010 at beginner and intermediate levels, supplemented by lectures on trending technology such as Google business apps, social media, email, using e-readers, shopping online, using library research databases, and much more.
All classes are free and are taught by outside instructors and library staff. Hands-on classes have limited seating and Fairfield residents are given priority. Registration opens 1 month before each class begins.
