Computer Training at the Library

Learn the basics about computers at one of the many computer classes offered at the Library. Hands-on and lecture classes are offered so you can learn how to browse the Internet, use word processing software, and download eBooks. Find out what’s going on at your Library below. Seating is limited and preregistration may be required. Check with your branch for more information.

Learn Computer Skills from Home

If you can't visit the library to attend one of our hands-on training sessions, try the online Learning Express Computer Skills training modules.

Follow this link and enter your library card number for access to several different self-paced, interactive courses on Microsoft Access, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and Word in both 2003 and 2007 versions. Each program offers skill level training from Basic to Intermediate through Advanced instruction. There are also tutorials to learn Corel WordPerfect X3, Windows Vista, XP, and Mac OS X.

These tutorials use Adobe Flash and require speakers or headphones for following along with the instruction.

Additional Online Tutorials

The Computer Tutorials page links to other online tutorials for additional training. The Palm Beach County Library is not responsible for these sites, but includes them as other informational sources where you can learn about computers and software.
