Tech Topics

The library offers Technology Topics, a series of programs and computer classes for all levels of expertise, in the spring and fall each year. Core offerings include hands-on classes in Microsoft Office 2016 at beginner and intermediate levels, supplemented by lectures on trending technology 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.
