These classes will introduce children and tweens to a Windows 10 laptop computer using fun, interactive, and engaging instruction and software programs. Students will learn "Type to Learn 4" a keyboarding program, Microsoft Office programs including Word and Excel, as well as "Kid Pix 5," "Comic Life," and "Tux Paint.".All classes are taught by a professional librarian.
