All classes below are FULL for March.  However, you may phone us at 477-5223 ext. 118 to be put on a waiting list.

About the waiting list: Because not all registrants show up for each class, there is usually space available.  While we cannot guarantee openings, the chances are good that if you show up you will get in.  Most "cancellations" are actually last-minute no-shows, so we usually cannot contact people on the waiting list ahead of time.  The list will be used if more unregistered people show up than space is available.

The classes below will next be held in May.  In April, we will offer a very basic introduction to computers (topics like using a mouse, navigating Windows, etc.).  Please check back here soon for dates.


The library is pleased to offer FREE introductory computer classes on popular topics.  Although there is no fee, registration is required (see below) and classes are limited to 9 students per session.  Classes are held in the library’s second floor conference room on laptops provided by us – no need to bring your own computer.

To register, please fill out the online form (or pick up a paper form the next time you're in the library).  We will phone or email you to confirm your registration.  If you have questions, please email Assistant Director Mike Boedicker at mboedicker@danvillepubliclibrary.org, or call 477-5223 x118.
