Free basic computer classes for adults

Update 11/09/12: The Grandview Library no longer offers these classes. Please contact Columbus Metropolitan Library at 645-2275 for possible class openings. 

Attend free basic computer classes for adults at the Grandview Height Public Library!

Connect Ohio
’s Every Citizen Online program is providing free basic computer classes for adults at public libraries and community colleges across the state. This federally-funded project promotes high-speed Internet availability and usage for all Ohio citizens.

Classes teach new users computer basics, how to access the Internet, and how to best utilize all the Internet has to offer—communication with family and friends, access to healthcare tools, education, online bill pay, tax filing, shopping, and more.


Participants must be 18 years of age or older. No computer experience is necessary, and participants do not need a computer. Ten laptops, purchased with a grant from this project, will be available for use at the Library.

A six-hour class is divided into two three-hour sessions. Choose from the following dates at the Grandview Library, from 1-4 pm:

2012

  • July 13 & 20
  • August 10 & 17
  • September 14 & 21
  • October 12 & 26
  • November 9 & 16

To sign up, call the Library at 614-486-2951. Register three weeks before the first class of the month. Class minimum is six. Arrangements can be made for those with special needs. 

Search other class locations in Franklin County, by zip code or by participating locations.

Participants with scheduling conflicts can take self-paced classes. Use any computer (including a Library computer) to visit
www.connectohio.org; click on the “Consumer Training” tab, then the "Self Pace Curriculum". Then, sign in or register for an account.

Once a participant has finished all six hours, he or she will be given information about companies providing Internet service in the local area, and will have access to special offers for discounted high-speed (broadband) service and/or discounts on computers, if offered in the area.

No credits towards college or GED courses are given for completion of this course.
