Classes on Blogging and Computer Safety Offered

Blogging is all the rage here at the John Jermain Memorial Library…and everywhere else, too. Find out what all the buzz is about at our three-session course, All About Blogging, which begins on Thursday, August 3rd from 8:45 to 9:45 a.m., and continues on the following two Thursdays at the same time. (There was a mistake in our newsletter, which indicated that this was a five-week course.) In this class will discuss what Blogs are, who writes them, where to find blogs of interest to you, how to subscribe, how to write comments on blogs, and even how to create your own blog. By the end of this class you’ll be ready to become part of the blogosphere. Call 725-0049, ext. 0 to register, or ext. 37 for more information.

In addition, we’re reprising our popular one-session class called Protecting Your Computer. With threats to your computer and your identity multiplying daily, taking appropriate steps to protect your computer is not longer optional. In this class you’ll learn about all types of threats including viruses, hackers, spyware, phishing, spam and more. In addition will arm you with the information you need to set up appropriate protections against all these threats. This lecture with visual aids is presented in our third-floor rotunda, and can accommodate up to 25 students. Pre-registration is required. Call 725-0049 ext. 0 to register, or ext. 37 for more information.
