Technology Classes

We are pleased to provide some basic technology classes for our patrons. Take a look over our offerings and give our Information Technology Manager a call at (205) 445-1115 to register. If you don't meet the requirements for a particular class, just let us know. We will work with you by appointment to make sure you're ready for the class you need.

Don't be afraid to ask us for help, either. Give us a call at (205) 445-1121. We'll assess what you need and make an appointment or point you in the right direction. We have lots of experience helping people. We offer 15, 30, and 45 minute appointments for people who need a little extra help. We won't set up your new technology for you, but we can help you learn the skills you need.
