The computer training schedule for August has now been published. The training schedule will focus on the Microsoft Office Suite for users who already have basic skills. We will be offering three levels of Microsoft Word, four levels of Excel, and PowerPoint II.
We are also offering classes for beginners with the PC Literacy series. PC Literacy I and II will be offered on Wednesday afternoons during the month.
Tips, Tricks and Shortcuts for All
We are pleased to reintroduce our latest class offering this month, a keyboard shortcut class called Tips, Tricks and Shortcuts. Tips, Tricks and Shortcuts is an introduction some of the time saving keyboard shortcuts for common computer programs that people use every day. Learn how using the Ctrl, Alt and function keys can make your keyboard experiences easier and make you look like an expert! It is for almost every level of student except introductory. Registrants should have mastered the concepts in PC Lit I and II and the Intro to Word. This will make their introduction to using the shortcuts much easier.

All courses are offered using Windows 7 and Office 2010. Registration is required. All registrants should look at the class offerings carefully to insure that they have the necessary skills for each class. Most classes are two hours long and limited to 12 students per class.
There is a $5 fee for cardholders and a $10 fee for non-cardholders for classes other than BRC classes. Fees will be added to a cardholder’s account and paid for at the Circulation desk. Register at the Library, by phone or by going to the event in the websiteCalendar and clicking on the Sign Me Up link. Your library card and PIN numbers will be required. Non-cardholders must pay at the time of registration, i.e. registrations must be in person.
Fees for computer class registrations are NOT refundable, so please be aware that you are making a definite commitment to attend a class when you register. Managing all of the changes in customer computer class registrations has been a very large job and has required staff hours which the library no longer has. The library would ask that you think of this as a small donation for all of the hours that are put in to running the classes.
If you cannot attend
If you cannot attend a class for which you have registered the Library would ask that as a courtesy to other registrants who may be waitlisted for that class that you call 732-390-6767 to cancel your registration or cancel your registration online so that they might have the opportunity to attend.
Waitlisted registrants will be notified by email and/or telephone as soon as there is a vacancy in a class. They will have 24 hours to respond to the notification. If they do not respond within that time frame, the next person on the waiting list will be notified. Once a commitment to attend has been made, that registration is subject to the same cancellation policy noted above. They do not pay unless there is a cancellation and they are admitted to the class proper.
For more information, please call 732-390-6767.
