Everyday Tech class series starts May 10

Technology is everywhere, all the time. It can seem overwhelming. The Fond du Lac Public Library, with help from its friends, is offering help through a five-part monthly series – Everyday Tech – at 1 p.m. on the second Thursday of the month in the library’s Idea Studio. The programs are free; no registration required.

Attendees are encouraged to bring their devices – smartphones, laptops, tablets – to the classes. Each program is standalone – it’s not necessary to have attended others in the series. The schedule:

  • May 10: Beginning Facebook, Part 1. Information technology professionals from Agnesian HealthCare will start at the beginning and cover how to connect to wi-fi, set up a Facebook account and find family and friends on Facebook.
  • June 14: Cooking online. Dietitian Mary Houser from ManorCare Health Services will offer an online tour of favorite and helpful cooking sites and apps.
  • July 12: Crafting online. Lindsey Thompson from Generations Home Care and Hospice will help make sense of the myriad crafting sites and apps.
  • August 9: Wellness online. Lucy Mathers from Lake View Place will provide a virtual tour of her favorite, most-helpful wellness sites and apps.
  • September 13: Beginning Facebook, Part 2. The IT professionals from Agnesian HealthCare return to cover the Facebook news feed, uploading photos and photo tagging. It’s not necessary to have attended the first class.

The Fond du Lac Public Library supports a high quality of life in Fond du Lac through reading, lifelong learning and community involvement. There are two locations: the Main Library downtown at 32 Sheboygan St., and FDLPL Express near Festival Foods at Highways 23 and 151. For more information, visit www.fdlpl.org.
