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.

There was so much interest in our Fall program, Cut the Cord, we podcasted the second sessions from December 2017 and have them available to play below. There is a PowerPoint presentation which includes Part 1 & 2, allowing you to follow along while you listen. We realize this information is constantly evolving, so the podcast will remain on the website for most of 2018 until the next in-person event.
