Libraries: Not Just For Books, Part I

The following is the first part in a five part series on services offered at the library that most people might not think about when they think of their local library (or librarian!)

Did you know that the King County Library System offers free computer classes at each of their branches? King County Library System's mission is to "provide all community members with free, open and equal access to ideas and information." Computers, via the Internet, are increasingly the tools used to gain access to ideas and information. Learning how to effectively use the Internet, and other tools that computers provide, is increasingly important in today's society in disseminating ideas and information. The Library also hosts "Open Forum" times to help you overcome any computer problems you are having at home.

  • Basic Computer Skills
  • Microsoft Publisher
  • Microsoft Excel Level 4 (Functions!)

Classes start again on January 17th and signing up for one at the Redmond branch provides you the opportunity to see the Library's recent remodel! You can register for upcoming classes by calling the library or at the Reference Desk.

Redmond Regional Library Calendar.
