Description

Many adults want to learn knew things but don't necessarily want to go to school. They like the idea of self-paced education and want to be in charge of the process. This workshop was designed to introduce our adult patrons to many of the avenues for learning that are available on their computers and through the library website. I also published a newsletter for them to take home to keep reminded of what we covered in this program.
