BCPL computer classes are primarily introductions to computers and the Internet. Occasionally a branch may offer a class on the basics of using Microsoft Word, email and resume writing.
For these hands-on computer classes, small group instruction is required. All computer classes are noted in dateLines as “registration required.” To register, you must call (Press 4 for Information Desk) or visit the branch during the week preceding the program. Online registration is now available. For how to do online registration, see http://bcpl.libanswers.com/a.php?qid=72740 Branch hours, phone numbers, locations, etc. can be found at http://www.bcpl.info/hours-locations/#neighborhood
