Computers for People Over 50
Those over 50 can come to Computers for People Over 50 on Mondays and Thursdays from 1 pm to 3 pm to receive computer training and support from patient and knowledgeable volunteers. This program is designed to meet the needs and interests of each participant. People with varying levels of computer experience are welcome to attend.

Each Monday at 2pm, the "Computers for 50+" lab interns offer a short (15 - 20 minute) mini-lesson. Lessons cover dozens of topics, from social media to internet search engines to external hard drives. This quarter they are also going to feature a series of mini-lessons entirely on phone usage, your computer and the internet. So, on Monday afternoon be sure to stop by, catch a mini-lesson, and get assistance with basic computer skills from our staff and interns that are eager and ready to support you!
