Introduction to QuickBooks, Level 1

An introduction to the popular small business financial software. This class is designed for individuals who are just starting out with QuickBooks and have a working knowledge of the Windows environment.  This first class of a multipart series will introduce users to the interface, show how to set up your company’s QuickBooks, and how to begin to add and work with customers, vendors, accounts and inventory.  The course fee is $50. Advance registration and prepayment is required.  See the event in the calendar for the specifics on registration and cancellation.  Registration is limited to 8 participants.

Excel III :

Continue advancing your intermediate skills in Excel. Learn how to use the data tab to import data, do more work with formulas, create simple macros for repetitive tasks and explore more of the page layout options. As time permits, students will also explore Excel templates and conditional formatting in Excel 2010.

Prerequisite: Excel II or equivalent Excel experience. 

Picture Perfect

Don’t know what to do with the pictures from your digital camera? Explore some of the free online photo editing and management websites that allow you to accomplish many of your photo editing needs fast and, of course, for free. Learn how to remove red-eye, crop, resize, add special effects, share and create online photo books. This session will demonstrate the features available at Shutterfly.com.

Prerequisites:  Internet II or basic Internet navigation experience. By signing up you are certifying that you have the basic skills required to complete this class.

Requirements:  Attendees need to have a valid email account in order to set up their Shutterfly accounts. They also need to bring some photographs in digital format (on their camera, CD or flash drive) to upload to their new accounts.

Search, Checkout and Download: Downloading Audiobooks and eBooks

People who like to read on the go might want to check out our class on how to download eBooks and Audiobooks. Learn how to download free books from The Library’s growing collection and other free resources to your Barnes & Noble Nook, Sony Reader, iPhone, iPad, Blackberry and Droid phone.  Please note that the Kindle ereader is not compatible with library ebooks due to the manufacturer’s restrictions.
