Free Computer Help Sessions for Putney Area Seniors

Putney, Vermont —Putney Cares and Landmark College will co-present a special two-session series of workshops hosted by the Putney Public Library to help Putney area seniors navigate the myriad of electronic devices, social media and the internet. Back by popular demand, “Tablets, Computers & Smart Phones, Oh My!” will be held on Tuesday, March 28th and Tuesday, April 4th in the morning — at the Putney Library at 55 Main Street. The starting time will be given when you RSVP.

The classes will provide one-on-one instruction to help seniors with computers or with an electronic device they may want to bring. The students can offer assistance with a wide range of topics, including using a browser, using electronic calendars and other organizational tools, how to conduct research online, how to avoid bad places and scams online, how to deal with error messages, how to use email programs, how to use social media sites, and how to navigate the web safely. Please bring your questions or a list of things you’d like to work on.

The classes are free and open to any Putney area senior, but space is limited, so reservations are required to attend either of the sessions. Please RSVP by Friday, March 24th for the starting time by stopping by the library or calling the Putney Library at (802) 387-4407.
